Roots & Shoots presents Fairport Convention

10 Mar 2007

Roots & Shoots presents a fortieth anniversary concert with Fairport Convention, the originators of British folk-rock.

Formed in May 1967, the legendary band features Simon Nicol (guitar, vocal), Dave Pegg (bass, backing vocal), Chris Leslie (fiddle, mandolin, vocal), Ric Sanders (violin), and Gerry Conway (drums).Since then, Fairport Convention has attracted huge critical acclaim, delighted audiences for four decades, and developed the world-famous music festival at Cropredy.

The band's greatest strength has always been live performance and Fairport Convention's concert will present an exciting mix of the old and new. Longstanding favourites such as Matty Groves and Meet On The Ledge will share the bill with new songs from the forthcoming anniversary album titled Sense of Occasion which will be released in January.

Fairport Convention's special guest on the tour is Tiny Tin Lady, a very talented trio playing original material with great flair.

Hosted by Nick Luscombe (Roots and Shoots/XFM Flo-Motion).
