Following a fantastically sunny and hugely successful Cropredy Convention in August, legendary British folk rockers Fairport Convention are busy preparing for their winter tour which reaches Farnham Maltings on February 10 at 8pm.

Special guest Dave Mattacks will be back on the drum stool he vacated in 1998. Dave was Fairport Convention’s drummer throughout most of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, and his skills have been in demand ever since. He has contributed to numerous studio recordings by Paul McCartney, Brian Eno, Elton John and Nick Drake.

Fairport Convention have been around since 1967, and despite many changes the band’s passion for performance has remained. Every show is a tour de force of British folk rock.
