Fairport Convention – Opening Concert of Summer Tour
Saturday 6th June 2020 at 8:00 pm

12th May 2020

We regret that this and all our other 2020 Festival Events and Festival Warm-up events have now been cancelled due to Covid 19.

However, we currently hope that our 2020 Autumn Events will go ahead as scheduled.

Our 2021 Season Programming is now underway and we expect to reschedule a number of our cancelled 2020 events for 2021. Please watch this space!

A system is being set up for making ticket refunds and we hope to begin processing refunds in the next few days. All refunds will be made via PayPal to the credit card used to make purchases or to your PayPal Account as applicable.

Credited with originating British folk-rock, Fairport first took to the stage in 1967’s summer of love. Throughout the intervening five decades (and numerous changes of line-up) the band’s passion for live performance has never wavered.

The band will play long-established favourites from their extensive repertoire.

Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim throughout its long career. The band won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking album Liege & Lief ‘The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time’, and their story and music has often featured on radio and
television.

Fairport Convention’s line-up is Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.

“Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue… (they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.” The Guardian

“Vigorous and confident…the music leapt around the room.” The Mirror
