Convention for folk fans

SINGER-songwriter Chris Leslie, who tours as part of Fairport Convention, will perform at Nettlebed Folk Club on Monday.

Chris has been a member of Fairport Convention since 1996 and was first inspired to play the fiddle by local musicans, aged 13.

One of his early influences and, later, his mentor was Fairport Convention’s then-fiddler Dave Swarbrick.

Since then Chris, who lives in Adderbury, Oxfordshire, has appeared on various albums and toured with a number of artists inluding singer-songwriter Steve Ashley, Dave Pegg and Ian Anderson, of Jethro Tull.

As well as playing and recording with Fairport Convention, Chris has added to their repertoire.
