OVERVIEW:

Fairport Convention has been making great music for over fifty years. Credited with originating British folk-rock music, the band has been through many changes but the current members retain a passion for live performance.

This year’s Winter Tour will feature a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and new material and will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the much lauded album ‘Full House’ and Dave ‘Peggy’ Pegg’s membership in the band!

Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim: the band has won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award; Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s ground-breaking album Liege & Lief 'The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time'; and their story has been celebrated with a major documentary on BBC Four television.

Fairport Convention features Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.

Whether you are a long-time fan or a newcomer to their music, an evening with Fairport Convention is sure to surprise and delight you.

Special Guests for the tour are the award winning duo ‘Smith and Brewer’, whose close harmonies and guitar playing will delight all.

“Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue... (they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.” The Guardian

“Vigorous and confident...the music leapt around the room.” The Mirror
