It’s a rare treat to have Fairport Convention’s Ric Sanders and Vo Fletcher performing together, but on Sunday 19th November at 7.30pm they will do just that for a blistering, bluesy night in Southwell!
Fairport’s Ric Sanders is one of England’s most versatile fiddle players – from folk and blues, to experimental rock with the likes of Japan’s Stomu Yamash’ta and the Red Buddha Theatre, and Soft Machine. Ric’s interests in British folk music were strengthened during a stint with Ashley Hutching’s Albion Band. And having joined the Fairport Convention line-up in 1985, thirty-five years later he remains an integral part of Fairport Convention’s evolving sound.
Guitarist and vocalist Vo Fletcher has composed, performed and recorded with artistes as diverse as Nigel Kennedy, Rik Mayall & Fairport Convention. Having written themes, songs and background music for Children’s TV programmes, he used to be a Children’s presenter on Channel 5 but he’s ok now 🙂
Ric’s association with Vo Fletcher goes back to their days as teenagers and over the last decade they’ve been involved in many projects, from recording Miles Davis classics live in Lincoln Cathedral to improvising an album with the inspirational Anjali Dance Company. Over the last couple of years though, they’ve taken a different direction, reconnecting with the music closest to their hearts – music firmly rooted in the blues. They love playing it, and audience feedback from their recent performances have shown just how much people love hearing it.
Ric Sanders and Vo Fletcher will be appearing at Southwell Library.
