On Friday 27 May, we will be welcoming the return of Fairport Convention, the British Folk-Rock band who have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, with 2022 being their 55th anniversary! 

Fairport Conventions’ 2022 Spring Tour concert 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 (celebrating his fiftieth year in Fairport), Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on percussion. 

Fairport Convention will be at the Torch Theatre on Friday 27 May at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £28 and are selling fast. Book your tickets here.
