Fairport Convention – The Playhouse, Weston-Super-Mare

If it’s February, it must be Fairport Convention time.

Support tonight came from the uncommonly tall Rosie Carson, and the rather more normal sized Kevin Dempsey. They played for 25 minutes or so before, as is usual, Fairport joined them for their last song. Fairport then stayed on stage for their first hour or so long set. This year they had a new album to promote so a fairly large proportion of the tracks were taken from that. The second set finished with the obligatory rendition of Matty Groves, followed by the encore of Meet on the Ledge. Anything else just wouldn’t be right.
