FAIRPORT ACOUSTIC CONVENTION
and SILENT AUCTION TO BENEFIT IMT


Enjoy an intimate evening with Fairport Convention's acoustic take on folk-rock music and help raise funds for IMT by bidding in our exciting silent auction featuring a JK28C Jumbo Cutaway Tacoma guitar and a host of other desirables donated by local artists and merchants. The members of Fairport unplugged are Simon Nicol (guitars, vocal), Chris Leslie (fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki, vocal), and Ric Sanders (violin).

Fairport Convention is, of course, renowned as the group that invented the British folk-rock genre. Formed in 1967, Fairport recently won the coveted BBC Radio 2 Lifetime Achievement Award. Fairport's greatest strength has always been playing live and this tour of the band's acoustic line-up lets audiences enjoy the performance up close. Blending a mellow mix of old and new, favorite Fairport compositions and traditional songs and tunes, the band takes diversions into jazz standards and swing classics. During nearly four decades, Fairport Convention has built an enviable reputation for adaptability and innovation – and the current tour proves that Fairport continues to stretch creative bonds and the range of music it plays.
