Caravan”On Tour” 50th Anniversary t-shirt

We would like to thank all of you who came to our last 3 gigs, we are so glad you enjoyed them, they were all sold out. It was great meeting and talking to you after the shows. As you know this is our 50th anniversary year, so we thought we would produce a limited edition t-shirt. Thanks so much to those of you bought it at the gigs and for your feedback. The t-shirt is now available to order on www.paradisefilter.com. As these will be produced to order the delivery time will be between 2-3 weeks.

 

We hope to be announcing further shows for the year soon, so please keep checking the website for updates. Once again thanks for all your support. Caravan.

45th Anniversary of Geoff’s first Gig with the Band

On behalf of the band and fans worldwide we congratulate Geoffrey on the 40th Anniversary of his first gig with the band in Berne Switzerland on September 9th 1972.
The line up at that time was: Pye Hastings Richard Coughlan Geoffrey Richardson Stuart Evans and Derek Austin.
If you look under the “media” section and “videos” on the website or visit the official Caravan YouTube channel there is TV footage from one of his earliest gigs with the band in France (playing a new arrangement of ‘The Love In Your Eye’).
We thank you for your superb playing over the years and your crucial contribution to the Caravan sound that is still very much in force today.

We look forward to catching the band on their eagerly awaited UK tour in November 2017
Next year is the 50th Anniversary of the band!
thanks Geoffrey!
