Beggars Opera Scotland's Classical Progressive Rock Band of the 70’s from Glasgow formed by Ricky Gardiner Guitarist in 1969.
In the 70's Beggars Opera recorded 4 albums for the legendary Vertigo label.
Their electrifying live performances earned them major success in Germany with Time Machine from Waters of Change in 1971.
Had you been there at that time, you would have seen and heard:
Ricky Gardiner's sonorous and surreal guitar climbs and bends
Alan Park's lavish organ psychedelia and phenomenal keyboard dexterity
Virginia Scott's ethereal mellotron orchestration with subliminal song and rhyme
Gordon Sellar's powerful and dynamic succinct bass growl
Raymond Wilson's pounding and relentless driving drum engine and kilt
Martin Griffith's 'fa la la' minstrel voiced strobe figurine air conducting the apocalypse.
