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 from their most recent studio album '50:50@50', celebrating their Golden anniversary. There will be an opening performance by the wonderful singer/songwriter duo, Winter Wilson, who have become favourites on the folk scene in the UK and as far away as Australia. Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim: the band has won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award; Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking 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.
