Fairport’s Cropredy Convention

We only went for two of the three days so missed seeing Supergrass on Thursday. The weather for days we were there couldn’t have been any more different. Friday I needed sun cream, then at one point on Saturday I was wearing three coats at the same time in an attempt to keep dry and warm.

Various highlights:

  • The Family Mahone introducing every song as “this is a drinking song”.
  • Robert Plant turning up to sing The Battle of Evermore with Fairport Convention.
  • Midge Ure with just an acoustic guitar singing Vienna.
  • Matty Groves re-enacted with Mr Potato Head

Time to wash off three days worth of mud and grime.

The only real casualty of the weekend was my tent, consigned to a bin bag and left with the rubbish.
