Fairport Convention


The folk rock innovators stop off at Leeds' City Varieties Music Hall in support of their latest album.

Formed back in the late sixties, Fairport Convention are widely recognised as key pioneers in the English folk rock movement, a reputation firmly strengthened with the release of their seminal 1969 album, 'Liege and Lief'.

Fast forward some 50 years later and the group still retain their passion for a good live show, heading to Leeds this March to mark the release of their brand new studio album 'Myths And Heroes'.
