REG MEUROSS: Singer, songwriter, storyteller Reg Meuross brings songs from new album RAW (along with the old favourites) to Green Note for an intimate matinee performance. 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.
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. Witnessing a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.

Reg will be joined by his great friend and very special guest David Massengill, the man who Dave Van Ronk said “took the dull out of dulcimer”!
David is recognised universally for his pivotal role in keeping the American folk music tradition alive. His songs have been covered and recorded by Joan Baez, The Roches, Lucy Kaplansky, Tom Russell and Nanci Griffith.
