Formed in 2004 by long time friends, Guitarist Martin Nico and Keyboardist Bob Connell, Mother Black Cap set out to create their brand of the much maligned genre of Progressive Rock. Focusing on good tunes & meaningful lyrics, plus the inevitable 'twiddly bits' that define Prog music.
They have performed hundreds of shows over the years including some the most prestigious Prog & Rock events - HRH PROG, Cambridge Rock Festival and many more and have played alongside such greats as Focus, Uriah Heep.......and Chas & Dave!
Maybe not the most productive in terms of quantity in the recorded format but still they have managed 4 studio albums to much critical worldwide acclaim.
