Reg Meuross is a true moderntroubadour,representing contemporary English folkwriting at its best.“There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt. His appearances at folk clubs and festivals throughout the UK and abroad, and his highly acclaimed solo albums haveestablished his songs as ‘the hinges upon which swing the doors of perceptive English folk’ (Folkwords).
2017 heralds a new solo album, Faraway People (to be released in the Spring), a fresh collection of songs from Reg Meuross which comment bravely on life as he sees it, bringing wide ranging stories, from the ravages of austerity and the injustice of the plight of refugees, to some of most beautifully disarming love songs ever written.
Reg will preview songs from this new album at Folk On The Moor, as well as performing a selection of old favourites from the Meuross catalogue. He 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.
“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

If that time ever comes I hope I can still be grateful for what I had and rest easy in the knowledge that I made songs for the right reasons, and I brought pleasure to people’s lives with them and even encouraged and inspired them to think or feel in a different way and possibly even make their own songs.” regmeuross.com Continue reading →
