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.

Reg Meuross is currently touring with FARAWAY PEOPLE, the second in his solo trilogy of albums (the first being DECEMBER), turning a much needed spotlight on pressing social issues such as austerity measures and refugees, and a stunning compilation of  SONGS ABOUT A TRAIN.

He has also found time to write and perform a song cycle, ’12 Silk Handkerchiefs,’ about Hull’s ‘triple trawler tragedy’ of 1968 which he researched with the author of the book ‘Headscarf Revolutionaries’ Dr Brian Lavery who narrates the show, performed by Reg and musicians from Hull.

And it doesn’t stop there: Seth Lakeman’s next album will contain some Lakeman/Meuross co-writes, and most recently Pete Townshend has selected Reg to write and record songs for an important new project, based around the Woody Guthrie song Deportees, explaining: “What Reg does is so pure, so honest, so strong and moral. He is a musician of conscience, and so his music has an additional component in it – journalistic emphasis and factual strength.”But listen to Reg Meuross and you will soon realise it’s not all protest, he has penned some of the most beautifully disarming love songs and lyrics ever written.

JULY 13th sees another new release – the eponymous REG MEUROSS was recorded in Germany by the cutting edge audiophile studio Stockfisch Records. MORE INFO HERE

Described by Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2’s Folk Show as a “brilliant singer songwriter with a social conscience” Reg Meuross tours the length and breadth of England, Scotland and Wales as well as delighting audiences in South Africa, Spain and Portugal, Australia, New Zealand and the US. In 2017 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 Folking.com

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 Folking.com 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
