Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century.

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 winter tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new, including their latest album, Shuffle and Go.

Fairport Convention have won a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and Radio 2 listeners voted their ground-breaking album Liege and 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 drums and percussion.

Special guest for the tour is singer/songwriter Luke Jackson, a wonderful performer gaining much recognition for his recorded work as well as touring the UK, Europe, and America relentlessly.

"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 and Tumble.
