1st March 2011 - 8pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Hailed as the originators of British folk-rock music, Fairport Convention remains one of the most entertaining bands on today’s concert circuit. Their sell-out gigs always attract critical acclaim and delight audiences.

Fairport has a vast repertoire to draw on and this concert will mix old and new.  As well as showcasing brand new songs from their recently-released studio album, the show will also feature a suite of songs celebrating the fortieth anniversary of their groundbreaking ‘folk opera’ Babbacombe Lee. 

Fairport Convention features Simon Nicol on guitar and lead vocals, Dave Pegg on bass and backing vocals, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki and lead vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.

The band has won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking album Liege & Lief  'The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time'.

Whether you are a long-time fan or a newcomer to their music, book now to enjoy an evening with Fairport Convention.
