Experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of two of the finest singer-songwriters around. Reg Meuross and Findlay Napier met for the first time at the Celtic Connections’ late night festival sessions in January 2020. Three months on they come together again for this very special double-billed evening of storytelling in song, presented by Oxford Music & Folk at Oxford Folk Weekend, with solo sets followed by a joint song and story swapping session. Expect to be moved as well as thoroughly entertained.

The breadth and depth of Somerset singer-songwriter 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.

“…assured a place in the pantheon of great folk songwriters.” David Kidman, The Living Tradition
“Classic, with echoes of early Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen” The Guardian
“The remarkable singer-songwriter that is Reg Meuross” Sean Rafferty, BBC Radio 3

Findlay Napier is one of the most highly-regarded performers and creative forces on the Scottish music scene. His warm and welcoming demeanour mixed with Glasgow wit make for a compelling live show; truly energised with a heart-warming zing.
“Songcraft and wit in the Difford & Tilbrook tradition” Sunday Herald
“Michael Marra meets Elvis Costello. . . Napier oozes class” Folk Radio UK
“A beautiful amalgam of Scottish soul, funk and folk” Irish American Times
