Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century.  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. 

During their 56 years together the band that launched British folk-rock has seen many changes, but their passion for live performance remains undimmed. This year’s Autumn Tour presents a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new.  

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.” Folk & Tumble
