Bradninch Festival performers Reg Meuross and The Boys From Melbourne Street

Superb singer, songwriter and guitarist Reg Meuross gave an exquisite performance on rootsandshoots this evening. At least one listener was so captivated that he he promptly ordered Reg's new album online. You too can do the same here
Reg is a busy man and you can check out his many gigs on his website. He performed for us by request The Shoreline And The Sea (from his album All This Longing) and his wonderful interpretation of the Dick Turpin story Lizzie Loved A Highwayman (from his album Dragonfly).

Reg's brand new album of recordings made between 2006 and 2011 is available online and the CD will be on sale soon. It's called The Dreamed And The Drowned and is highly recommended. From it, we played the title track and Mr Rain The Taylor.

Reg Meuross with an amazing band are appearing at Bradninch Music Festival this Saturday 11 June along with our other guests on this evening's show The Boys From Melbourne Street who - as always - gave us a polished and highly entertaining set. They played Chinese Whispers, Trouble Tonight and Your Life.
