Fairport Convention, with their rich history and unparalleled legacy, have been captivating audiences worldwide for over five decades. The band's unique blend of British folk and rock has earned them a place of honor in the music industry, having 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, Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals. Fairport will be joined on stage by former member Dave Mattacks on Drums.
Opening up for Fairport Convention will be the brilliant 'Plumhall' (Michelle Plum and Nick B Hall). Using a mesmerising combination of acoustic and electric instruments (occasionally with electronica), they create breathtaking soundscapes to their powerful original songs.
