Reg Meuross - Saturday May 25

|||| |||| ||||

We are delighted to welcome back to the house's Soloist of the Year 2019!

Somerset singer-songwriter Reg Meuross’s clever and imaginative lyrics have earned him a reputation as a 'Master Storyteller' and led Mike Harding to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as “one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced”.

Reg brings to the stage a collection of extremely beautiful songs, performed with humour and depth, and sung with a beautifully mature tenor-voice.

He has that rare gift of being able to connect with people's humanity through his songs and performance, at a really deep level.


Reg is currently touring with his latest album, '12 Silk Handkerchiefs' which tells of fighting fishwife Lillian Bilocca, who led a battle for better trawler safety following Hull's Triple Trawler Disaster of 1968. Like much of Reg's work, this project has touched hearts (of seemingly the whole city of Hull, and beyond) at a deep level, and grown into something very significant.

Mark Radcliffe introduced Reg Meuross onto the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show as a “brilliant singer-songwriter and true troubadour with a social conscience”. But it’s not all protest; as well as story-songs which bring characters to life, Reg also writes and sings some of the most heart-aching love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery.

Another special night is in store; get your name on the list now! (Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or leave a message on our answerphone - ideally with a mobile number so we can text you confirmation!)

“An insight into the human spirit and empathy in the plight of ordinary people.”
Froots Magazine

There's lots of video on Youtube of Reg for you to check out; here's 'England Green & England Grey', which was the title track of Reg's recent album. It was hailed by some as 'a new national anthem for our country'!


Concert Comments

  • Our gig at St Cuthbert's House was a real pleasure.  We had a fantastic time, and we hope to be back again!

  • If it weren’t for people like you putting heart and soul into making these things happen... the music scene in the UK would be much the poorer.
    Lorraine, Different Strings music agency

  • It's been such a lovely tour... your gig was the highlight of it all.  We'd love to do this again, so hopefully see you guys soon.
    Fabian Holland

  • "From the moment we stepped into the beautifully converted chapel we were made to feel relaxed, pampered and welcome. The surroundings and the warmth of the audience ensured we could play at our best without inhibition. We look forward very much to coming back to St. Cuthberts. xx"

  • Such a beautiful place to do a concert!

  • "I didn't know what to expect of a show in a B&B - but it was absolutely sublime! The room is acoustically fantastic, lovely lighting - and to top it all off, the place itself is absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful audience, magical night! I can't wait to get back!"
    Krista Detor

  • "St. Cuthbert's House was not only a highlight of my UK tour, it was one of the highlights of my entire year! It's a magical venue run by music lovers. My show was packed and the audience was fantastic. Jeff and Jill went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I feel so lucky that I was also able to experience the beauty of the Northumberland coast while I was there. I can't wait to return to Seahouses, as both a performer and as a guest!"
    Jesse Terry

  • "St Cuthbert's House was definitely one of the highlights of our most recent UK tour. Jeff and Jill are perfect hosts, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the seats were full, and the sound was fantastic. A great intimate venue in a beautiful setting."

  • "Thank you Jeff and Jill for such a wonderful show. SCH is a beautiful venue and the audience were warm and receptive but above all, I remember the kindness and hospitality of you and your family. I'll be back"

    Clare votes us her No 1!

    We've been enjoying reading Clare Balding's new book recently. She stayed with us here at St Cuthbert's House a while ago, but we were really taken aback when folks began to call to tell us that she mentions her stay at St Cuthbert's House in the book! Here's what she says, on page 201:
    'St Cuthbert's House went instantly to the top of my 'best ever B&Bs' list. I would describe it as a luxury small hotel with a family feel, but that might not fit on the signs.' Aw, thanks Clare!

    Want to see what's so special about Northumberland?

    Some time ago, we began work with our local Tourism Association to produce a video showing some of the things which make this area so very special.  Now the video is complete, and we are deeply grateful to the remarkable young film-maker Cain Scrimgeour for working patiently with us across the seasons, to create something very, very beautiful. This is 7 minutes long, and we urge you to settle back and watch...
