Folk legends Fairport Convention set to land in Liverpool for golden anniversary tour

British folk legends Fairport Convention are celebrating their golden anniversary with a highly anticipated Liverpool show.

On Sunday, January 29 the band will step onto the stage at Camp and Furnace to perform new album 50:50@50 and promise to rejuvenate some firm fan favourites.

Founding member, Simon Nicol said: “Fairport Convention have been extraordinarily fortunate to create a work ethic based on live performance.

“As someone whose hobby ultimately became a career, I’m happy every time the van pulls up outside my house to take me off on my travels, where the stage awaits and I get a chance to make everyone happy that they made the choice to buy a ticket.”

Surviving a number of line-up changes, the group still attract critical acclaim, winning a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000 and Radio 2 listeners also voted their album, Liege & Lief “the most influential folk album of all time”.
