Otherwise known as Progressive Rock
Paul Vickery – Minehead District u3a
The important bit!
The Prog Rock group normally meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 3 pm. While COVID restrictions are in place, we are meeting online, using Zoom; once government lockdown has finished, venue TBA. It’s envisaged that meetings will be of a hybrid nature, i.e. participants meet face to face along with links via Zoom to remote participants. Please remember to check the Calendar in case of any late changes to schedule. No costs or entrance fees.
Our group is led by Paul Vickery, and he may be contacted via the envelope link
About the Group
Open to anyone that has an interest in progressive rock. Loved by many and hated by some, progressive rock (or prog rock) is one of the most popular subgenres of rock music. Groups such as ELP, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Porcupine Tree, Jethro Tull, and Wishbone Ash, to name but a few, fall into this category. We’ll listen to various music and discuss times gone by. You may have attended concerts, we may be able to find recordings on ‘Spotify’ or YouTube. You don’t have to have access to any playback mediums, as I, or hopefully some of the participants will play music via a ‘share screen’ process. Don’t be frightened by technology, we’ll help you enjoy an hour or so of entertainment and make new friends. Initially, just drop me an email for further information.
Come on, don’t be shy. If you’ve got an interest in ProgRock, why not join us on our next monthly Zoom group.
We’ve now got members from all over the UK. People living in Scotland, London, Nottingham, Pershore, Reading, Barnett, Canterbury, Harrow and not forgetting Minehead.
The Minehead and District ProgRock group was set up last month and we’ve just had our first Zoom group meeting. Everyone is welcome. All you’ve got to do is be able to log onto Zoom, no other technical skills required.
We propose that in these days of lockdown, the group meets via Zoom every second Tuesday of the month, in the afternoon at 3.00pm. The next one is 9th March.
Going forward, when the group can meet face to face, the meetings will take a hybrid approach, enabling all those participants from far flung corners of the UK to join via a Zoom link.
We’ll listen to music and maybe watch videos of selected artists.

I look forward in meeting you.
