DESCRIPTION:

 “Stuffing their set with a surprising amount of new material for a vintage act, Fairport are still clearly having fun and brought the house down.” The Guardian

Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, 2022 is their 55th anniversary!

During that time the band that launched British folk-rock has seen many changes, but one thing has remained the same – Fairport’s passion for performance. This year’s Autumn Tour presents a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new including their latest album, Shuffle & Go.

Winners of a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Radio 2 listeners also voted their ground-breaking album Liege & Lief “The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time”. Their story has been celebrated with television documentaries on BBC Four and Sky Arts. The band features founding member Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on percussion.

“Fairport is an institution, a festival, purveyors of memories, and keepers of the folk flame. But most of all they are a brilliant live band.” Folk & Tumble
