Fairport Convention has been entertaining music lovers for over half a century with 2023 being their 56th anniversary! During that time the band has seen many changes, but one thing has remains the same – Fairport’s passion for performance.
This year’s tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new.
Fairport Convention has won a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and BBC Radio 2 listeners voted their ground-breaking album Liege & Lief as 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, plus Dave Pegg, Ric Sanders, and Chris Leslie.
‘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’
‘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.’
