Fairport Convention

Fairport Convention is a British folk rock band formed in 1967. Their first gig was in a church in May 1967. The band is considered the pioneer of the English variant of the folk-rock, a style that was modeled entirely until then in the American folk from artists like Bob Dylan. With medieval ballads like Matty Groves (13th century) and it was by the British and Celtic folk-influenced music Fairport Convention is an example for many bands in England and abroad. Fairport Convention has undergone numerous personnel changes and has evolved over the years to play traditional folk. Famous artists who have played in the band include Sandy Denny, Iain Matthews and Richard Thompson.
