A legendary British folk rock band is gearing up for a spectacular Brecon show this March.

Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, having formed in 1967. During that time the band that launched British folk-rock has seen many changes, but one thing has remained the same - Fairport’s passion for performance. 

This year’s Winter Tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new.

The tour will again see celebrated former-drummer Dave Mattacks join the proceedings, having first returned to the stool last year. Mattacks featured as Fairport Convention's longstanding percussionist throughout most of the 70s, 80s and 90s, and his skills have been in demand ever since, having contributed to numerous studio recordings by the likes of Paul McCartney, Brian Eno, Elton John and Nick Drake.

Support for the Winter 2024 tour will come from PLUMHALL (Michelle Plum and Nick B. Hall). Using a mesmerising combination of acoustic and electric instruments (with occasional electronica), the duo create a breathtaking soundscape to their powerful original songs.

Fairport Convention will play at Brecon's Theatr Brycheiniog on Thursday, March 7 at 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm).

Tickets can be purchased via the theatre's website or by calling the box office on 01874 611622.
