Kingsbury May Festival

May 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

INFO COMING HERE

Reg Meuross will be headlining the 25th Kingsbury Episcopi Festival. A very special gig which will include the song ‘Martin’ which the church commissioned Reg to write about their patron saint St Martin.

The acclaimed Somerset singer-songwriter is on tour with new album 12 Silk Handkerchiefs and characters from his 12 other superb albums.

Described by Mark Radcliffe as a “brilliant singer-songwriter and true troubadour with a social conscience”, it’s not all protest; as well as story songs which bring characters from history to life and comment on life around him Reg also writes and sings some of the most heart-aching love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery. “There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” said Townes Van Zandt.

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 painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung, accompanying himself masterfully on guitar and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice.
