    Catshill Social Club, Meadow Road, Catshill, Bromsgrove B61 0JJ

    A true troubadour and constantly on the road, Meuross has the gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.

    Masterfully accompanying himself on guitar, harmonica, banjo and dulcimer and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice, witnessing a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.

    Amazingly, it wasn't until Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2019 that we finally managed to catch this tremendous performer and immediately fell in love
