  Announcement soon! London    


Hi all!Karnataka are very pleased to announce the New Light Tour 2012! The band is embarking on a 15 date touracross the UK starting in January.The band has made a concerted effort to reach as many areas of the country as possible, and in particular to reach those towns and cities missed on previous tours. The band is also attempting something fresh and new by performing at some of the most unique and beautiful venues in the country from traditional theatres and unique art centres to a stunning 14th Century converted barn.


The band will be playing a special set comprised of favourites old and new, alongside a few surprises and perhaps even some new material – a taste of what to expect from the follow-up to the award winning album ‘THE GATHERING LIGHT’.


The New Light Tour also marks the first live outing for a line up which now features Hayley Griffiths on lead vocals. Many of you may already be familiar with Hayley though her solo work and her time spent as lead vocalist with Riverdance and Michael Flatley’s Lord Of  The Dance. Hayley’s debut solo album ‘Silver Screen’ won her the Best Classical Crossover Artist Award in 2010 and her recent release, ‘Celtic Rose’ sees Hayley paying her musical respects to the genre that has brought her to the attention of a world audience.


From Istanbul, Turkey we bring you the sublime keyboard talents of Cagri Tozluoglu. Cagri has already made his mark on the Karnataka sound matching his immense playing skills with a penchant for experimenting with new sounds and technology. What does that button do? Cagri will show you!


For the very first time Karnataka have taken on a sixth permanent musician and band member in the very talented form of multi-instrumentalist Colin Mold, whom some of you, once again, may be familiar with through his solo work and many collaborations, including his time as the driving force behind folk rockers Kara. Colin will be playing additional lead, rhythm and acoustic guitars, violin and keyboards… and he’s not a bad singer either!


Returning to the drum seat is Louie Palmer, now gaining a richly deserved reputation as a world class drummer who is very much in demand. You may have seen Louie drum with Karnataka on previous tours or possibly with some of the other artists he has performed with including Barclay James Harvest.





The band will be filming select tour dates in High Definition for a forthcoming release – your opportunity to be part of an exciting new project! Further details to follow soon.

Tickets are on sale now and we will shortly be announcing the date and location of the London show, which we hope will be something very special indeed!
