Fairport Convention 2022 Winter Tour calls at Walsall Arena 1st March

0

Iconic UK Folk Rockers Fairport Convention are celebrating their monumental 55 year anniversary with their first Winter Tour in 2 years, taking in 30 dates throughout the UK. They play Walsall Arena on March 1st.

Having entertained music lovers for over half a century, 2022 sees Fairport Convention celebrate the 55th anniversary of the band’s original formation back in 1967. During that time, the group that launched British folk-rock has seen many changes, but one thing has remained the same – Fairport’s passion for performance.

The band’s original members met in 1966, rehearsing on the floor above Simon Nicol’s father’s medical practice in a house named ‘Fairport’ in Muswell Hill, London. The building’s name would lend itself to the band’s moniker upon their 1967 formation.

2022’s Winter Tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from releases old and new, including their latest album, Shuffle & Go, which was released just before ‘lockdown’ in 2020. Fresh off of the back of their hugely successful Autumn live dates, the upcoming tour will see the band play iconic venues such as London’s Union Chapel, Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music and the City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds.

There’s always something new to admire, even in the most familiar of their songs.

Fairport is an institution, a festival, purveyors of memories, and keepers of the folk flame. But most of all they are brilliant live band.
