MARILLION 'WITH FRIENDS AT ST DAVIDS' 2 CD Set (2021)
British rock band Marillion, founded in 1979, have, over the course of 18 studio albums, become one of the most commercially successful progressive rock bands of the 1980s and are still one of the most outstanding representatives of their genre. The concept of 'With Friends at St. David's' began with the release of 'With Friends From the Orchestra' in 2019, when Marillion teamed up with In Praise of Folly, a string quartet accompanied by French horn and flute, to record a stunning album full of re-arranged Marillion treasures. That same year, Marillion took these very special versions on tour and even added a few more songs like 'Gaza' and 'Zeparated Out' to the setlist, presenting them in a whole new light. 'With Friends At St David's' is not only a visually and sonically remarkable live album, but also a dedication to crossing musical boundaries and making 'friends' outside of one genre and musical universe.
