Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, with 2022 being their 55th anniversary!

During that time the band that launched British folk-rock has seen many changes, but one thing has remained the same – Fairport’s passion for performance. The performance will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new including their latest album, Shuffle & Go, which was released just before ‘lockdown’ in 2020.

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.

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, and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.

‘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

Doors 7.30pm | Unreserved Seating

FERN BRADY: Autistic Bikini Queen

Following a sold out tour across Europe and Australia in 2019 and her most recent BBC stand up special Power & Chaos, Fern Brady brings her fifth solo show Brain on a nationwide tour.

As seen on Live at the Apollo, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Roast Battle, Russell Howard, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club. As heard on BBC Sound’s Wheel of Misfortune podcast, the News Quiz and the Now Show.

Scotsman – “She’s absolutely fearless – there’s nowhere she won’t go and nothing she won’t say on stage and she’ll switch from snarling and menacing to sweet and girlish in an instant. It’s a killer combination”

Evening Standard****-  She is distinctively acerbic and scathing but, most importantly, hugely entertaining too.

 

Doors 8PM. Start 8:30PM
