We are delighted to welcome Reg back to Hepworth 13 years after he first played for us. In the years since Reg has developed a number of brilliant projects including 12 Silk Handkerchiefs, a song cycle marking the Hull Triple Trawler Disaster of 1968 and celebrating fish wife Lillian Bilocca’s fight for better safety on the trawlers.  More recently he has been touring his album Stolen from God, unpicking the history of slavery and featuring a new collaboration for Reg for Reg, with kora master Jali Fily Cissokho alongside acclaimed concertina virtuoso Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne. The album brings a global musical palette with Meuross’s striking lyrics sitting alongside his signature guitar/banjo, enhanced with Cohen-Braithwaite’s punchy playing and Cissokho’s sparkling contribution.

 

Reg’s clever and imaginative lyrics have earned him the title of “Master Storyteller” (PennyBlack Music) and led Mike Harding (Mike Harding Folk Show) to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as “one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced”. Whether it’s a village hall or the Albert Hall, Reg brings to the stage a collection of extremely beautiful songs, performed with humour and depth, and sung with the voice of an angel. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people, through his songs and performance, on a really human level. His words and music paint pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.

Saturday 20th April -  
Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage

Since emerging in 2016, Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage have been defying all conventions of style, genre and compartmentalisation. A touch of ‘Americana’, yet quintessentially English. Traditional, yet contemporary, with their individual writing style. Playful and instinctive, they constantly do the unexpected; yet they do it with such panache and natural chemistry it makes perfect sense.

Hannah Sanders has an alluring mystique and a voice of disarming purity that massages your senses. Ben Savage is a bubbling ferment of energy and infectious enthusiasm, seemingly able to play any instrument you put in front of him with grace and favour.

They have recorded two studio albums to date, Before the Sun (2016) and Awake (2018) and have captivated audiences at shows and on festival stages alongside Americana and folk luminaries such as Sarah Jarosz, Martin Simpson, Seth Lakeman and Oh Susanna.

They are true originals, that’s all there is to it. Distinctive. Innovative. Ground-breaking. Unique.

Hannah & Ben release a new album Ink of the Rosy Morning on Topic Records in early 2022.
