Credited with originating British folk-rock music, there is nothing quite as joyous as a live Fairport Show.

In association with Gulbenkian, Folk in the Barn present Fairport Convention.

Fairport Convention has been making great music for over fifty years.

Credited with originating British folk-rock music, there is nothing quite as joyous as a live Fairport Show. Original and traditional songs, stories and tunes, expertly played and presented with great warmth, style and humour. The February visit to Canterbury has long become a wonderful tradition, enjoyed by the band and their family of loyal fans.

Support from singer songwriter duo Winter Wilson.

“Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue… (they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.” The Guardian

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
