Reg Meuross with special guest harpist Anna Tanvir
Kingskerswell Parish Church, Newton Abbot.
A magical musical evening with Somerset singer-songwriter Reg Meuross and special guest harpist Anna Tanvir, plus beautiful harmonies from our local friend Katie Whitehouse and her Totnes Pop Up choir.
This concert is part of Reg’s ‘Two Albums Tour’ encompassing his two latest album releases, Faraway People and Songs About A Train. Reg is a true modern troubadour, from gigging in village halls, arts centres and intimate folk clubs to playing the Royal Albert Hall and huge festival stages in the UK and abroad, he consistently entrances his audiences with songs of life, love and injustice, soulfully delivered with melodic tenor vocals and exemplary guitar playing. He has that rare gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance on a really human level, with words and music painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.
“Time and again, Reg proves himself one of the key songwriters of our age” David Kidman
"…every song from the gentle, enchanting genius is worth its weight in gold” Folk Wales
Songs About A Train:
“This release confirms that Reg is, unequivocally, quite simply one of the finest singer-songwriters of our, or any other, times.” Folk Radio UK
“Your musical book case will be empty without it.” Folking.com
