Somerset based singer-songwriter Reg Meuross represents contemporary folk writing at its best, with 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.

This concert is part of the Reg Meuross Two Albums Tour, encompassing two album releases: Faraway People and Songs About A Train. These songs 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 lyrics ever written. Reg is a true modern troubadour, as comfortable gigging in village halls and folk clubs as he is playing the Royal Albert Hall and huge festival stages. He consistently entrances his audiences with songs of life, love and injustice, soulfully delivered with melodic tenor vocals and exemplary guitar playing.

“Time and again, Reg proves himself one of the key songwriters of our age” David Kidman

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

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

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 sings in the neutral accent of an Englishman who travels the entirety of the British Isles, and tastes all its flavours, influenced by all its most profound national colours. In this he reminds one of Roy Harper or Ewan McColl, recent greats who went before him.”

Reg’s clever and imaginative lyrics have earned him the title of “Master Storyteller” (PennyBlack Music) and led Mike Harding (Mike Harding Folk Show) to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as “one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced”.
