Description

Meet Reg Meuross

at The Barrel House Totnes Sunday 10th February

a Straw Hat Media/Whitehouse Session

Doors 4.30 pm, Q&A starts 5pm.

"Reg Meuross writes songs about people, for people. That's what folk music is - the people's music. It tells our stories, it protests with us, it marches with us."

You are invited to a very special live filming of a Q&A with Reg Meuross, an intimate wander through the life and songs of one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. Audience numbers are limited, so please let us know if you can attend. Reg will be interviewed on stage (you will get a chance to submit a question for inclusion) and he will include some songs as he talks us through his journey through 28 years as a solo artist.

Reg first emerged onto the acoustic music scene in the 1980s with the fast paced duo Panic Brothers, and has, over the years of touring and playing solo as well as with many other acclaimed artists, developed a style that as Pete Townshend says “allows the listener to embrace the whole breadth of his work over many years without distraction… he sings in the neutral accent of an Englishman who travels the entirety of the British Isles, and tastes all its flavours, influenced by all its most profound national colours. In this he reminds one of Roy Harper or Ewan McColl, recent greats who went before him.”

He then went on to form the band The Flamingos which featured ex Graham Parker guitarist Martin Belmont, Bob Loveday from The Penguin Cafe Orchestra & Bob Geldof’s Band & Alison Jones of The Barely Works. In 1996 Reg decided to go solo, and his catalogue of 13 albums includes story songs which bring otherwise forgotten characters from history to life and songs of protest, alongside some of the most heart-achingly beautiful love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery.

"I want one of whatever Reg Meuross is drinking" Tom Waits

“There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt.

“Powerful and moving songwriting” The Telegraph

“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
