The Fairports Convene in Pembrokeshire

Fairport Convention in 2016

Folk-rock legends Fairport Convention return to the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven on Friday 27 May. The band has been entertaining music-lovers for over half a century, with 2022 being its 55th anniversary.

Fairport Convention will present a mix of long-established favourites and some surprises from albums old and new, including their most recent album, Shuffle and Go, which was released just before
lockdown in 2020.

The band features founding member Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar (celebrating his 50th year in Fairport), Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on percussion.

Kitty knows that she will always be an incomer, but this is to be her sixth summers. The wet and grey days of winters have not diminished her love of Pembrokeshire, but she is always grateful for the golden light of spring and summer. Her love of the sea sustains her even through the darkest of days and she can often be found at high tide bobbing about in Fishguard harbour at high tide, often with seals in attendance. When not freezing in water she is usually at her computer. She says" has been an opportunity to celebrate this beautiful county and its people. Keep the stories coming. We love to hear from you."
