Robert Godfrey wins "Visionary" award

Written by Joe Payne. Posted in Enid News

Prog Awards 2014

We hope you will join us in congratulating Robert in receiving a thoroughly deserved and long overdue award for his "Visionary" achievements at the Progressive Music Awards 2014.

Held in the Globe Theatre on the banks of the Thames, The award was presented by Newsnight's Gavin Esler, and the Editor of Prog Magazine himself, Jerry Ewing.

CLICK HERE to watch Robert's full speech on YouTube. Apologies for the amateur filming, but we thought you might like to share the moment with us.

"It's an absolute joy to see this man back on stage and creating absolutely wonderful far reaching music that is truly ground breaking." Jerry Ewing, Prog Magazine Editor

"The real burning fire of inventiveness - of wanting to succeed - is going to be with the young. So let's do our best to involve the younger generation and hand to them the very substantial musical skills that we in this room have acquired over the course of our lives, by the hard work and graft and determination that we've given to our music." Robert John Godfrey.
