Reg Meuross has performed at the Albert Hall and has been playing acoustic and folk clubs the length and breadth of England, Scotland and Wales, as well as delighting audiences around the world, for over 30 years, but this will be his first time at The Acorn Theatre. Bill Goodyear, local musician, music lover and occasional MC of Penzance Folk Club is responsible for bringing Reg to Cornwall, “I heard him on the Radio 2 Folk Show, went to two clubs where people were singing his songs, then investigated further and decided to bring him to Penzance because I want to hear more…..”

Described by Mark Radcliffe on the Folk Show as a “brilliant singer-songwriter with a social conscience” Reg is touring with not one, but two new albums: hard hitting ‘Faraway People’ which turns the spotlight on issues which should not be left in the shadows, and stunning compilation ‘Songs About A Train’. This two albums tour also includes the cream of his extensive back collection, highlighting his ability to tell stories in song, weaving them with beautiful melodies, and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice. And it’s not all protest; Reg has penned some of the most beautifully disarming love songs and lyrics ever written.

First emerging onto the acoustic music scene in the 1980s with fast paced duo Panic Brothers, Reg has, over the years of touring and playing solo as well as with many other acclaimed artists, developed a style that as Pete Townshend says “allows the listener to embrace the whole breadth of his work over many years without distraction… he reminds one of Roy Harper or Ewan McColl, recent greats who went before him.” 

Concert:

“One of the most talented storytellers of our generation” Pennyblack Music

“Powerful and moving songwriting” Martin Chilton, The Telegraph

“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy

“There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt.

“A very English kind of Americana…. echoes of early Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen” The Guardian
