Reg Meuross @ Shrewsbury Folk Festival
August 29various ticket options
Described by Mark Radcliffe as a “brilliant singer-songwriter and true troubadour with a social conscience, “Somerset singer-songwriter Reg Meuross is now touring with songs from 14 releases and some brand new songs from two forthcoming song cycles: Fire & Dust and Stolen From God.
And it’s not all protest, as well as story songs which bring characters from history to life and comment on life around him, Reg also writes and sings some of the most heart aching love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery. “There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” said Townes Van Zandt. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, on a really human level, his words and music painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung, accompanying himself masterfully on guitar and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice.
“When you have 2000 people singing along, you’re doing something right.” Great British Folk Festival
“One of the most talented storytellers of our generation” Pennyblack Music
“Powerful and moving songwriting” Martin Chilton, The Telegraph
“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
Reg will be performing a solo set at Shrewsbury Folk Festival on Monday the 29th of August. for exact timings and locations please see the festival program.
