Procol Harum at Silkeborg, Denmark

Pictures from Claes Valentin Jensen


This is almost certainly during the moody Whaling Stories, during which night fell
on the open-air arena at Silkeborg 8 June 2002

Three Procolers at work ... the small stage bringing them pleasantly close together

Geoff at the microphone, possibly for his part in An Old English Dream

Paler Thomas Raa Olsen had contacted the promoter to see if it would be possible to get
a traditional B3 for Procol Harum so that Matthew would not have to reach up for the
Leslie switch, as he is frequently seen to do on the Copenhagen DVD. It was!

Waterproof curtains to the side of the stage ... they were not needed on this glorious June evening

Liberal quantities of dry ice provide a fitting backdrop for Maestro Whitehorn

A glimpse of the Book of Orchids here, from which Gary sometimes reads the song-words

The Strings of Doom ... albeit only the flaming shirt of Matt Pegg is visible

The hired RD 600, with Gary's Kurzweil sound module perched as ever on the bass end.
This particular piano had an intermittent tuning problem: it required particular vigilance on
Gary's part to ensure that the audience remained unaware of it.
