Fairport Convention on Sunday 29th January 2017

FAIRPORT CONVENTION 2017 WINTOUR

Enjoy an evening of musical celebration with Fairport Convention at this

golden anniversary concert.

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.

To mark its fiftieth year, Fairport has released a brand new CD titled

50:50@50. The band will play a selection of tracks from the album as well as

long-established favourites from their extensive repertoire.

The concert will also feature an opening performance by Sally Barker,

one of England’s most talented singer-songwriters. Sally came to prominence

in the all-girl folk group The Poozies but is best known for her appearances on

the BBC TV talent show The Voice where she sang on Sir Tom Jones’ team.

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

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
