The band that launched British folk rock has seen many changes over the years, but their passion for live performance is as strong as ever. Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, with 2022 marking their 55th anniversary, and their headlining slot will feature a mix of long-established favourites and surprise deeper cuts from albums old and new – including their latest release Shuffle & Go. The line-up features founding member Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals alongside Fairport legends Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.
