We can’t wait to welcome the incredible Fairport Convention to Sidmouth for our first Pre-Festival Concert on Thursday 2nd Aug 8.00pm (Ham Marquee).

Fairport Convention has been making great music for over fifty years. Credited with originating British folk-rock music, they retain a passion for live performance. Fairport Convention features Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion. Whether you are a long-time fan or a newcomer to their music, an evening with Fairport Convention is sure to surprise and delight you.

“Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue… (they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.” The Guardian   

All Week and Weekend ticket holders get considerably reduced prices for the Pre-Festival shows.
