Fairport Convention 50th Anniversary Concert at St George’s in Beckenham

Fairport Convention are to open the Arts at St George’s Festival in Beckenham on Friday 5th May 2017 at 8.00pm.

So, come and join us and the band for this golden anniversary concert for an evening of musical celebration on the 50th Anniversary Tour.

Credited with originating British folk-rock, Fairport first took to the stage in 1967’s summer of love. Throughout the intervening five decades (and numerous changes of line-up) the band’s passion for live performance has never wavered.

To mark its fiftieth year, Fairport has released a brand new CD titled 50:50@50. The band will play a selection of tracks from the album as well as long-established favourites from their extensive repertoire.

Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim throughout its long career. The band won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking album Liege & Lief ‘The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time’, and their story and music has often featured on radio and
television.
