Looking-Glass Lantern is all about Graham Dunnington, an Englishman with a Classical background, who used to play for a Classical Rock band, propably this collaboration set the seeds of what was to come. He completed his PhD in Victorian Popular Music and the next step was to combine his studies with his love for Progressive Rock. In 2013 he recorded and released his debut ”A Tapestry of Tales”, a work close to the lines of GENESIS, THE ENID and early PENDRAGON, playing all instruments and singing. The next year ”The Hound of the Baskervilles” was released, establishing Dunnington as one of the extremely talented composers of modern Symphonic Rock.
The music of Looking-Glass Lantern fuses ‘classic’ progressive rock with the atmosphere of Victorian England. The result is a musical style of great character and charm. Whilst being firmly grounded in the world of progressive rock, the influence of classical music is never far away, and fans of longer pieces and story-telling may find something of interest in the songs.
The first two Looking-Glass Lantern albums were conceived as a pair, based on the famous adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The album A Tapestry of Tales includes among others The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle and A Scandal in Bohemia, while the second album, released 13 October 2014 is devoted entirely to The Hound of the Baskervilles.
