Promoters for Folk on the Pier

…and other fine folk, rock and roots events

Scott Butler
Scott Butler created Deckchair Productions in the early 'noughties' initially as an agency for a number of English folk rock bands which included Little Johnny England and Tickled Pink. However during that time as originator and producer of the ‘Folk on the Pier’ festival in Cromer, Norfolk , Scott branched out to produce a number of offshoot concerts under the banner ‘Folk Beyond the Pier’. Since then he has gone on to produce numerous concerts and events mainly in the East Anglia area including promoting many years of the Fairport Convention annual Winter Tour dates in Norfolk and an extensive run of 'Live at the House' concerts at Norwich's historic Assembly House. He has also produced some significant rock & blues shows including ‘Heads Down No Nonsense Boogie’ which featured the Hamsters and Wilko Johnson and two ‘Rock & Blues on the Pier’ with Dr Feelgood, Nine Below Zero and many others. Scott still produces a number of concerts but ‘Folk on the Pier’ remains the flagship production and more information on the festival can be found on the Folk on the Pier website.

Fairport Convention in Concert 

After one of the most successful years in their career, Fairport Convention take to the road with a new album of original songs. Hailed as the creators of British folk-rock music, the band members retain their passion for live performance making Fairport one of the most entertaining bands on the concert circuit. 

Fairport's 2015 Winter Tour concerts will feature songs and tunes from the brand new studio album ‘Myths And Heroes’ as well as classics from a repertoire spanning nearly fifty years. 

Each concert on the tour will feature an opening solo set from talented guitar-fiddle duo Kevin Dempsey and Rosie Carson. 

Fairport Convention hold a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and their ground breaking album Liege & Lief was voted 'Most Influential Folk Album of All Time' by Radio 2 listeners. 

Whether you are a long-time fan or a newcomer to their music an evening with Fairport Convention will delight you.
