About the Event

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. Meuross has the gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.  Masterfully accompanying himself on his  ‘44 Martin six-string guitar, harmonica, tenor guitar, banjo and dulcimer and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice, to witness a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.

“Classic, with echoes of early Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen” The Guardian

“The remarkable singer-songwriter that is Reg Meuross” In Tune, Sean Rafferty

“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy

Partners in life as well as music, Harbottle & Jonas have established themselves as one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Dave Harbottle and Freya Jonas have evolved a compelling live signature sound blending concertina, harmonium, piano, banjo, stomp box, acoustic guitar and cittern with their close harmonies and trademark vocal interplay.

Their most recent album The Beacon was written and recorded at home during the summer of 2020 and heralded as “magnificent” by Folkradio.co.uk.

“Great originality, and enjoyment… nothing short of sublime” Folk Radio UK “thoughtful words and music rooted in tradition yet entirely current” Americana UK

Reg, Dave and Freya know each other well and have collaborated before on Reg’s lockdown song Shine On and their trio album Songs of Love & Death, which they will present at The Gather on Saturday 19th March
