Fairport Convention 35th Anniversary, Cropredy
8/13/2002 (updated 8/13/2002)
Somewhere in the region of 20,000 folks turned up to a field in Oxfordshire to help celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Fairport Convention over the weekend of August 8, 9 & 10. Well done Chaps!!
It rained - the sun shone - there were kids and animals and tents and a bar - a long bar. There were good friends - old and new. Generally a fine time was had by all as far as I could tell:)
RT & Danny Thompson played from 8p to 10p on Friday night prior to "The Early Fairport" line-up (which, of course, RT was part of. )
RT also played with the "Full House" line-up on Saturday as well as with Marc Ellington and, for the finale, Meet On The Ledge.
