Our lineup Is changing...

Message from Bruno to all friends and fans of Hot Rock Pilgrims:


"As you may (or may not) have noticed, I have been absent from some of the recent Hot Rock Pilgrims gigs.  Over the past 5 years, I've been playing a lot of gigs with Hubert, Dan, Sam and Kieran. It's been great fun and it still is! But I'm also rather passionate about my other job as a microscopy consultant (https://www.inss.org.uk/about/) and balancing music and microscopes can be quite exhausting at times. I would really like to catch my breath, put the music on the back burner and concentrate on microscopes and family for a little while. I don't really think of it as "quitting the band", but rather as "becoming a dormant band member". I still have two more Hot Rock Pilgrims gigs in the calendar for this summer (https://twinwoodevents.com/ and http://www.bunkfest.co.uk/), and I certainly hope that I will be able to join the guys occasionally during the 2019 festival season. However, I will not join them for the October 2018 tour up North, and generally speaking, if you see any future Hot Rock Pilgrims gigs announced somewhere, you should assume that it will be without me".
