REG MEUROSS will be performing in St Andrew’s Church, Colyton as part of the Friends of St Andrew’s Church fundraising programme to help support the fabric of this beautiful church.

 

Reg is a true modern troubadour, representing contemporary English folk writing 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 have established 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 Colyton, 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
