Since 1985 Ric Sanders has been the fiddle player in legendary Folk Rock Band Fairport Convention.

In the late 70s he played in both Soft Machine and The Albion Band, and it was in the latter that he met Michael Gregory, now drummer with The Home Service. Ric’s association with guitarist and vocalist Vo Fletcher goes back even further – they played together when still teenagers. Vo has played with artists as diverse as Rik Mayall and Nigel Kennedy (just to keep Ric on his toes!). It was inevitable that these three pals would play together, and over the last decade they’ve been involved in many projects, from recording Miles Davis classics live in Lincoln Cathedral to improvising an album with the inspirational Anjali Dance Company. Over the last couple of years though, they’ve taken a different direction, reconnecting with the music closest to their hearts. It’s music firmly rooted in the blues. They love playing it, and their recent performances have shown just how much people love hearing it – a rockin’ good time was had by all!   They cross boundaries and defy categorisation, with original compositions, folk tunes and some drastically re-worked Fairport tunes.

Their first visit to Folk in the Barn in 2014 was fantastic, selling out in record time.  They are  one of our most requested returners.
