Reg Meuross @ Peel Centenary Centre
June 24 @ 8:00 pm£12
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.
Reg is currently touring with latest songs of history, protest, love, loss, and legend from 14 releases and some brand new songs from two forthcoming song cycles: Fire & Dust and Stolen From God.
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.
