Accompanied by up-and-coming singer/songwriter Jess Vincent, Reg Meuross serenades his audiences with his unique, haunting tenor and expressive guitar playing.
He's a maestro who spellbinds his audiences, as he performs his elegant, touchingly emotional and very personal self-penned music. His imaginative and finely crafted storytelling songs have earned him the title 'Master Storyteller' 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.""
Info provided by the Event Organiser
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).
Reg Meuross tour dates
Jess Vincent is a highly original artist with a growing following in the folk/indie/Americana acoustic scene, currently touring with new release Lions Den.
This new release, recorded in her home studio in Bulgaria, brings with it a thread of the people, stories, colours, flavours and instruments from her new life there as well as Jess's trademark subtle arrangements on guitar, baritone uke, banjo and harmonium, along with her uniquely soaring vocal. Jess will also be playing old favourites from her previous three albums.
“Jess Vincent doesn’t just Shine, she positively glows” Mike Davies for folking.com
“..one of the brightest stars out there… Vincent’s crystal-clear vocals sending shivers down the spine. ” Malcolm Carter PennyBlack Music
"Soulful, strong and utterly engrossing" Mick Tems, Folk Wales
"uniquely and obliquely original" Rock'n'Reel R2
“… accessible, tuneful folksiness, with dashes of Americana of the light-textured Appalachian variety” Folk n Roots
