Folking.com soloist of the year 2019 brings songs from his new album RAW along with old favourites, and he might even sing his as yet unreleased ‘Sing a song of Westonzoyland’ which he wrote in 2010 in response to a challenge from an audience member at the village hall.
The breadth and depth of Reg Meuross’s material is unparalleled in contemporary folk: songs about forgotten heroes, famous names, folk legends, the climate emergency, tales from the kitchen sink and news from the world stage; if something needs to be sung about then Reg Meuross has a song for it. Masterfully accompanying himself on his ‘44 Martin six-string guitar, harmonica, tenor guitar, banjo and dulcimer and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice, witnessing a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.
“…assured a place in the pantheon of great folk songwriters.” David Kidman, The Living Tradition
“Classic, with echoes of early Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen” The Guardian
“The remarkable singer-songwriter that is Reg Meuross” Sean Rafferty BBC Radio 3
