Fairport Convention 

Friday 4th February 7.30pm | Taliesin Live


Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a
century, with 2022 being 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 Winter Tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport
favourites and some surprises from albums old and new including their latest
album, Shuffle & Go, which was released just before ‘lockdown’ in 2020.
Fairport Convention have won a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and 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, 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. Luke is a
wonderful performer gaining much recognition for his recorded work as well
as touring the UK, Europe, and America relentlessly.

"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 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
