7 May 2021 (Tickets on sale in December 2020)
We are delighted to welcome the legendary Fairport Convention for the latest of our 'big gigs' at St Andrew’s. The band will be appearing on Friday 7 May 2021 and will play music from across their huge back catalogue as well as from contemporary releases.
Fairport Convention were trailblazers on both sides of the Atlantic in the late 1960s and 70s and still maintain a large following, not least from those who regularly adjourn to the Cropredy Festival in Oxfordshire every August. The band’s personality, singing and musicianship are 'sans pareil' and audiences can look forward to a great evening of music.
Among the many highlights of Fairport’s work was the ground-breaking album Liege & Lief, which brought together the traditions of English folk music with the best of modern, electric instrumentation. Their personnel has included Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson and Dave Swarbrick and the current line-up is Simon Nicol (founder member) as well as Dave Pegg, Gerry Conway, Chris Leslie and Rick Sanders.
