The amazing Fairport Convention return to Acapela after sell out shows in 2018 and 2019!
THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM 31ST MAY 2020.
Fairport Convention has 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 Spring Tour concert will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from album sold and new including Full House which was released 50 years ago this year.
The band skilfully interprets traditional ballads and the repertoire also includes plenty of contemporary compositions. 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 (celebrating his fiftieth year in Fairport), Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on percussion.
“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
