Reg Meuross is a true troubadour. With fourteen solo albums to his name, the breadth and depth of his material is unparalleled in contemporary folk: songs about forgotten heroes, famous names, folk legends, the climate emergency, tales from the kitchen sink and news from the world stage; if something needs to be sung about then Reg Meuross has a song for it. After the collaboration of the 12 Silk Handkerchiefs project, Reg’s new album RAW sees him return to the solo performance style that audiences across the land are so familiar with. Accompanying himself on his ‘44 Martin six-string guitar, tenor guitar, banjo, dulcimer, and harmonica, RAW is the sound of one man and his songs. The resulting album is an intimate window into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.
