This gig is part of the DIY Songwriting with Reg Meuross workshop.
7pm arrival for 7.30pm start.
Somerset singer-songwriter Reg Meuross brings moving new song cycle 12 Silk Handkerchiefs to Halsway Manor, along with characters from his 12 other superb albums.
Described by Mark Radcliffe as a “brilliant singer-songwriter and true troubadour with a social conscience,” it’s not all protest; as well as story songs which bring characters from history to life and comment on life around him Reg also writes and sings some of the most heart-aching love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery. “There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” said Townes Van Zandt. 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 painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung, accompanying himself masterfully on guitar and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice.
