Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century. The band will present a mix of long-established favourites and some surprises from albums old and new, including Full House which was released 50 years ago this year.
Fairport Convention have won a BBC 'Lifetime Achievement' Award and BBC Radio 2 listeners 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 (celebrating his fiftieth year in Fairport), Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on percussion
'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.'
'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.'
