Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - LIFE & LEISURE -

ONE of the most popular Bri­tish bands of the 1960s and ‘70s is on its way to the Wy­combe Swan.

Hailed as the orig­i­na­tors of Bri­tish folk-rock mu­sic, Fair­port Con­ven­tion re­mains one of the most en­ter­tain­ing bands on the live mu­sic scene.

Fair­port’s 2014 Win­ter Tour will fea­ture a mix of ma­te­rial from their re­cent al­bums as well as clas­sics from the band’s ear­lier reper­toire. There will also be some brand new and pre­vi­ously un­per­formed songs.

The band has won a cov­eted BBC Lifetime Achieve­ment Award and Ra­dio 2 lis­ten­ers voted Fair­port’s ground­break­ing al­bum Liege & Lief as the most in­flu­en­tial folk al­bum of all time.

Whether you are a long-time fan or a new­comer to their mu­sic an evening with Fair­port Con­ven­tion will sur­prise and de­light you.

The show takes place on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 4 at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets cost £21 and can be booked by call­ing the box of­fice in 01494 512 000.
