Going strong 40 years on!

BARCLAY James Harvest have been around in one form or another for nearly 40 years.
For the reason, look no further than the durability of their music, full of imagination and - just as important - melody.
BJH were one of the first bands to go on the road with an orchestra - and were probably the only rock group with their own orchestra!
Excellent musicianship was always their trademark, before differences within the band led to a split.
