Reg Meuross will be touring until Summer 2018 with FARAWAY PEOPLE, the second in his solo trilogy of albums (the first being DECEMBER), plus a surprise new release (out on February 2nd) SONGS ABOUT A TRAIN.

2018 kicked off well with a run of sell out gigs, a FATEA award for the song Faraway People and a live session on BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, listen again HERE.

During 2017 Reg was described by Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2’s Folk Show as a “brilliant singer songwriter with a social conscience” and he toured the length and breadth of England, Scotland and Wales as well as delighting audiences in South Africa, Spain and Portugal. In August Reg was invited to take part in a very special event at the Holocaust Centre in Cape Town, where he showcased his song from Faraway People about Sophie Scholl who was a brave young anti-Nazi activist caught and guillotined aged 21. For Sophie (This Beautiful Day) was described by Mike Harding as “one of the most important songs to be written in the last 30 years.”

Here’s a small selection of quotes from Faraway People reviews:

“Every song from the gentle, enchanting genius is worth its weight in gold.” Mick Tems, Folk Wales

“Reg proves himself one of the key songwriters of our age.” David Kidman, Fatea Magazine

“An insight into the human spirit and empathy the the plight of ordinary people.” Froots Magazine

“A deep well of compassion and insight into the human heart and spirit.” Mike Davies, Folk Radio UK

“These are songs to really listen to, to make you think and remember.” John Waltham, The Living Tradition Magazine

“…for all its soft reflectiveness it hits as hard as anything you’ll hear.” Dai Jeffries

2017 was a year in which Geoff Lakeman covered Reg’s song England Green and England Grey in his debut album After All These Years. Reg has also been busy co-writing with Seth Lakeman for Seth’s next album and also recorded a compilation album with Stockfisch Records in Germany (still to be released). The Living Tradition magazine featured Reg.

As well as touring with the Two Albums Tour until July 2018, Reg will be showcasing a new song cycle, 12 Silk Handkerchiefs, a multi-media platform show inspired by the book The Headscarf Revolutionaries by Brian W. Lavery. Reg will sing the song cycle with local musicians, and Brian will narrate, to a back drop of slides from  the story of Hull’s tragic Triple Trawler Disaster of 1968 and the revolutionary women from the fisheries (the ‘Headscarf Revolutionaries’) in particular Lillian Bilocca, who were behind an incredible campaign for improved safety on the trawlers.


“Time and again, Reg proves himself one of the key songwriters of our age, and Faraway People is (even on the briefest of acquaintances) bound to be judged among his finest collections.” Read full review by David Kidman for Fatea Magazine HERE
“Verdict: every song from the gentle, enchanting genius is worth its weight in gold. Just buy it!” Mick Tems, Folk Wales. Full review HERE
Too many protest singers, not enough protest songs”, sang Edwyn Collins, but that’s certainly not something that applies to Reg Meuross.  From everyday victims crushed by an uncaring society to unsung heroes taking a defiant stand against the darkness of tyranny and oppression, Faraway People goes the distance in turning the spotlight on issues that should not be left in the shadows.” Read full review by Mike Davies of Folk Radio UK HERE 
“Faraway People is destined to be one of the albums of the year” Read full review by Dai Jeffries of HERE

“Calling Meuross a singer-songwriter really doesn’t do the man justice. Meuross doesn’t write lines of lyrics. He writes short stories then sets them to some of the most captivating melodies you’ll ever hear.” Pennyblack Music

“Magnificent powerful and moving” Pete Townshend
