A Winter’s Evening with Reg Meuross

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Reg Meuross, acclaimed singer-songwriter and Folking.com Soloist of the Year 2019, returns to the intimacy of the solo format after a successful Summer of festival appearances and an Autumn touring a full band production of his song cycle 12 Silk Handkerchiefs with support from Arts Council England.
On tour from October with new album RAW – a record that follows on from Faraway People and December to complete his trilogy of solo works – Reg will be performing new material at the Great Hall as well as songs of history, protest, love, loss and legend from thirteen previous albums.

A true troubadour and constantly on the road, 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.

Masterfully accompanying himself on guitar, harmonica, 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'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. Reg Meuross www.regmeuross.com “…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).
