Calling Reg Meuross a singer-songwriter really doesn’t do the man justice. He doesn’t write lines of lyrics. He writes short stories then sets them to captivating melodies. Reg’s imaginative and finely crafted songs prompted Mike Harding to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as “One of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced”. This concert is part of the Reg Meuross Two Albums Tour, encompassing two album releases: Faraway People and Songs About A Train. These songs comment bravely on life as he sees it, bringing wide-ranging stories, from the ravages of austerity and the injustice of the plight of refugees to some of most beautifully disarming lyrics ever written. Whether it’s a village hall or the Albert Hall, Reg brings to the stage a collection of extremely beautiful songs, performed with humour and depth, and sung with the voice of an angel. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people, through his songs and performance, on a really human level. “There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt. “A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
