Fairport Convention will be performing at Hailsham Pavilion on June 1 (7.30pm).
Formed way back in the “summer of love” 60s by Simon Nicol and Ashley Hutchings, Fairport Conventionis the most celebrated folk-rock band of all time.
Such distinguished musicians as Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson, Iain Matthews and Dave Swarbrick have all done their bit over the years with the band, which is now in the safe hands of Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, (joined in 1969), Ric Sanders (joined in 1985), Chris Leslie (mid 90’s), and the superb percussionist, Gerry Conway.
Fairport Convention are recipients of the coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and their album Liege and Lief was voted Best Folk Album of All Time in a recent BBC poll.
Their show at the Pavilion will include a mix of brand new songs and re-workings of their classic repertoire.
Tickets cost £22.50, call 841414.
