Fairport Convention has been making great music for over fifty years. Credited with originating British folk-rock music, the band has been through many changes but the current members retain a
passion for live performance. This year’s Winter Tour will feature a mix of long-established
Fairport favourites and new material from their most recent studio album 50:50@50 celebrating their Golden anniversary. Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim: the band has 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 has been
celebrated with a major documentary on BBC Four television. Fairport Convention features 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.
