Southport Convention? Fair enough

Who forgot to switch on the flash?
A bunch of local musicians have decided to get together to perform an evening of Fairport Convention songs of the 1969 to 1975 era. Chris & Siobhan Nelson, Richard Simcock, Dave Thornley and Maurice Watson have decided to operate under the tongue-in-cheek moniker, Southport Convention. Knowing these particular performers as I do, I'm confident that they will do the material justice, although these are certainly big shoes they are filling. Their special guest is David Hirst.

They're playing at 8.00pm this Friday 24 July at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. Tickets are £4 on the door. The club sells real ales from Southport Brewery.


  1. Doesn't that just mean "traditional songs"? Not that that would be a bad thing...!

    1. I see your point, but Fairport did sing some original songs as well, mostly written by Sandy Denny or Richard Thompson.
