Holmfirth Festival Of Folk 2013: The Wilson Family + Cherrington & Ward + Reg Meuross
Holmfirth Festival of Folk is a small, friendly festival which aims to involve the local community as much as possible. The festival offers a mixture of dance, concerts and sessions in a variety of settings to cater for all tastes.
There are folk club type events, formal concerts, workshops and less formal performances in virtually every pub, bar and restaurant in Holmfirth and the majority are free!
The festival has always taken pride in the quality and variety of dance performers and street entertainers at Holmfirth and every year it seems to get better.
Difficult to find better harmony singing. Always an evening of passionate fiery music with plenty of good banter thrown in.
The Wilson Family tour dates
Reg's imaginative and finely crafted songs have earned him the title of Master Storyteller (Pennyblack Music), and prompted Mike Harding to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as 'one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced'. Reg is a true modern day troubadour – commenting on life as he sees it, with some of the most beautifully disarming songs and lyrics ever written.
“…sounds like a forgotten, American 60s classic with echoes of Dylan, Tom Paxton & Leonard Cohen” Robin Denselow, The Guardian
“There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt.
In the mid-1980s Reg Meuross formed the Panic Brothers with Richard Morton, mixing Americana with humour and slick harmonies. Then came the Flamingos, Hank Wangford, and now 11 highly acclaimed solo albums have established his songs as ‘the hinges upon which swing the doors of perceptive English folk’ (Folkwords).
Reg’s songs comment bravely on life as he sees it, bringing wide ranging stories from the ghosts of WW1 soldiers to the ravages of dementia, and some of the most beautifully disarming songs and lyrics ever written. 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 paint pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.
“Meuross, quite simply, is one of the best” Malcolm Carter, Pennyblack Music
“Powerful and moving songwriting” Martin Chilton, The Telegraph
“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
'Magnificent, powerful & moving' (Pete Townshend).
'Intelligent and thought-provoking songs, beautifully made and skilfully delivered' (The Times).
