Reg Meuross – Patron @ The Priston Music Festival

September 18 @ 3:20 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The festival are delighted to have renowned singer-songwriter and great story-teller Reg Meuross as their patron artist. Reg is well loved at Priston and has performed there many times. He will be back in 2022. Reg has described the festival as ‘the jewel in the crown of my festival season’. Praise indeed!

What the organisers have to say about the festival:

“Priston Festival was formed as a charitable society by a group of local people in 2008.  The aim was to create an annual community festival which would allow us to celebrate local music and artistic talent – hence our slogan “Live ‘N’ Local“!

Many of the acts who perform are from the nearby cities of Bristol and Bath – both renowned for their music scenes. We also stage a smaller number of  nationally-renowned acts  from further afield

We aim to stage an event which has a broad range of music.  Previous festivals have included folk, jazz, blues, rock, world, reggae, choral and classical music.  We also provide singing and dancing workshops, film, and literary events as well as children’s art activities.

The main venue is the Village Green Stage outside the Ring O Bells pub. There is also a smaller Chill Stage in the Village Hall car park. These are where the majority of the acts on show perform, and they are free to view.
We also stage music, film and literature in  the beautiful parish church, the village pub, and the old village hall with its newly-refurbished car park.”

Reg Meuross.

The breadth and depth of Reg Meuross’s material is unparalleled in contemporary folk: songs about forgotten heroes, famous names, folk legends, the climate emergency, tales from the kitchen sink and news from the world stage; if something needs to be sung about then Reg Meuross has a song for it.

Reg is touring with songs of history, protest, love, loss, and legend from 14 releases and some brand new songs from two forthcoming song cycles: Fire & Dust and Stolen From God.

Masterfully accompanying himself on his ‘44 Martin six-string guitar, harmonica, tenor guitar, banjo and dulcimer and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice, witnessing a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.

“…assured a place in the pantheon of great folk songwriters.” David Kidman, The Living Tradition

“Classic, with echoes of early Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen” The Guardian

“The remarkable singer-songwriter that is Reg Meuross” Sean Rafferty, BBC Radio 3

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

Reg will be performing on: Sun. 3.20pm, Village Green, FREE
