After more than fifty years on the road Fairport Convention’s passion for live performance has never wavered. This concert will showcase the band’s musical sophistication and instrumental virtuosity during a fascinating journey through their inspiring and extensive repertoire. Renowned as the founding fathers of British folk-rock music, Fairport Convention has maintained consistently high standards for over five decades and remains as entertaining as ever.
This concert will also feature an opening performance by special guests The 4 of Us. Hailed as one of the most acclaimed duos in Ireland, brothers Brendan and Declan Murphy are accomplished singers, instrumentalists and song-writers.
Fairport Convention have announced that there are three dates on their current winter tour that will have a different running order. This includes 16 February at Bath Forum where they say they will be joined by Saving Grace – a new band from the Marches. Five voices raised in celebration. These nights will see The 4 Of Us followed by Saving Grace, then the interval, then Fairport closing the evening. Peggy from Fairport Convention writes “I do advise you try to make one of these special nights.”
This is a seated show taking place at Bath Forum, 1A Forum Buildings, St. James Parade, Bath BA1 1UG.
On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon.
