The George Hotel, South Molton welcomes Reg Meuross once again on Saturday 15 December. Reg is this time accompanied by up-and-coming singer/songwriter Jess Vincent, as he serenades the audience with his unique, haunting high tenor and expressive guitar playing coupled with her refreshing voice.
He is a maestro who enthrals his audiences, as he performs his elegant, touchingly emotional and very personal self-penned music. His heights of storytelling place him amongst the ranks of the troubadours of the middle ages, with his ability to touch and inform the listener. Regs imaginative and finely crafted songs have earned him the title of Master Storyteller and prompted Mike Harding from BBC Radio 2s Folk programme to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as One of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced.
Earlier this year, Reg was invited to the famous Abbey Road Studios, London to record a new collection of songs; he has called Leaves and Feathers. It is essentially a solo album, with the addition of Bethany Porter playing cello. During his appearance at The George, Reg plans to have eagerly awaited, signed, pre-release cds available to the public for the first time.
Reg first emerged onto the acoustic music scene with The Panic Brothers, in 1987. In 1996 he released his critically acclaimed album The Goodbye Hat and was nominated for several music awards, including best song for Ring around the Roses. It was followed up in 2004 with Short Stories and in 2006 by the excellent Still. In 2008 he released his most successful collection to date, Dragonfly, followed in 2010 by All this Longing.
His 2011 cd The Dreamed and the Drowned is a collection of thirteen previously unreleased archive songs. It was commissioned and compiled by Stephen Jordan at The Bodleian Music Library, Oxford, who says This is Reg Meuross at his most eclectic and inspiring best. The legendary Pete Townshend agreed, saying I love The Dreamed and the Drowned, its Stunning!
Accompanying Reg on this tour is the talented, young Jess Vincent, who is already becoming a name to reckon with. She is blessed with an uncanny ability to create her own world using her mature and brilliant vocals, intriguing lyricism and dazzling melodic flair. Together she and Reg produce an outstanding performance.
