Annie Haslam and Sonja Kristina, two of the most dynamic female vocalists to emerge from the classic rock era of the 70s will perform live at Buxton Opera House for the first time next month.

Recognised as being the first to blend progressive rock with symphonic arrangements, Renaissance, spearheaded by Annie Haslam since 1971, regularly feature a full orchestra

in their recordings.

Renaissance is a band with a rich history as progressive rock pioneers who rose from the ashes of seminal UK band, The Yardbirds.

Their career has spanned 40+ years and the group still have their own fan base keen to hear the five-octave voice of Annie Haslam and the masterful songwriting skills of Michael Dunford.

Sonja Kristina fronts Curved Air who are best known for the single Back Street Love.

Curved Air continue to entertain old and new fans alike and recently released their seventh studio album, North Star.

Renaissance plus special guests Curved Air will play at the Opera House on Sunday, April 17, at 7.30pm.
