Fairport Convention Autumn 2024 UK Tour

 

Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, with 2024 being their 57th 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 Autumn Tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new.  Above all it will be a fun evening spent with old friends, a lot of laughter, great stories and the best played folk-rock music that we can't get enough of.

 

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 and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on bouzouki, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and vocals.

 

"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."
