Reg Meuross @ Folk night at the Sunningwell Festival
June 3 @ 7:00 pm£20
Our very special folk day kicks off with Morris dancing and culminates in an evening of live folk music with the one and only Reg Meuross starring as our headline act… it’s sure to be a splendid evening and if the weather is fine we’ll be staging the performances alongside the pond at the art school… if wet we can always resort to the village hall, nearby.
“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
The breadth and depth of Reg Meuross’s material is unparalleled in contemporary folk: songs about forgotten heroes, famous names, folk legends, the climate emergency, tales from the kitchen sink and news from the world stage; if something needs to be sung about then Reg Meuross has a song for it.
Masterfully accompanying himself on his ‘44 Martin six-string guitar, harmonica, tenor guitar, banjo and dulcimer and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice, witnessing a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.
Reg is currently touring with latest album RAW, along with other songs of history, protest, love, loss, and legend from 13 previous releases and some brand new songs from two forthcoming song cycles: Fire & Dust (songs about Woody Guthrie, the man and his life) and Stolen From God (about England’s involvement in the slave trade.)
Meuross has the gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.
“There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt
