2 bargain (i.e. promo version) purchases... Holly Cook's "Vessel of Love" - a lovely album of reggaefied tunes  Smiley

and

Beth Hart "Live at RAH 2018" - oh dear, I really don't like this.  Huh

I'd heard BH with Joe Bonamassa so thought I'd give it a go. I guess it'll find its way into my wife's car - she's a JB fan, so may well enjoy it.

Devils Dance Floor - Flogging Molly has just cropped up on the BBC2 advert for the Golf Open! Someone has good taste.

Folk by the Oak yesterday.  I had not been to this for the last couple of years and it was a shame to miss both the cricket and the tennis (mildly entertaining, I’m told), but this was pretty much a perfect day.  All the acts were good, but the standout ones for me were Karine Polwart and the Spell Songs project.  Frank Turner was the best closing act they have had for a while.  Never seen crowd–surfing at a folk festival before!

I too thought Frank Turner was good but describing him as punk or folk seems to me to be excessive genre stretching. Of the other acts I liked Talisk best, Seth Lakeman offered something fresh 15 years ago but 15 years on that is no longer the case, he was better on the solo parts of the act I thought. Spell songs seemed to me to be less than the sum of their parts and I got a bit fed up with the inter song chat of The Staves. I particularly enjoyed three of the Acorn stage acts, The Trials of Cato, Grace Petrie and Elephant Sessions. Overall a very pleasant day.

Festival programme arrived in the post this morning, so an uplifting start to the week.  Just a pity that it clashes with Croppers.

The Wilsons aren't on the line-up. Disappointing, I hope there aren't health issues or owt bad.

It's a good line-up but I can't figure who the headliners are for Sat, Sun or Mon. At a guess, Martin Barre, Kate Rusby (but she's never headlined there before) and Andy Fairweather Low (or Capercaillie maybe). It doesn't really matter, always plenty of new things to discover.

Anyone using my Clashfinder, please note I have only penciled in the main field timings based on last year. This year the timings have not yet been announced. (or if anyone knows, please let me know)

As soon as I have them, I will update the Clashfinder.

I'm not sure if I should link here, so google Clashfinder and enter in the search box "Fairport's Cropredy Convention 2019"

Enjoy.


Interesting, thanks for that. Looks as though possibly Krankschaft will overlap with both Wildwood K and Caravan, so I will probably stay in the arena.
Timings might change though, hopefully.

Thunder, Lightning, Strike by The Go! Team, earlier while driving, perfect uplifting music for a sunny morning.

Then it was Thunder Up by The Sound, an 80s group (from Brighton, or do I misremember?) that never got big. I bought it a few years ago when I saw a second hand copy. It's OK, they sound very much of their time, bit like Echo......, U2, Then Jericho, and others I can't put a name to.

Now it's Time Machine, a best of for Stray. If you were watching rock bands in the 70s you must have seen Stray, they supported everyone, or so it seemed, as well as playing on the club/college circuit in their own right. It's a fantastic double CD, another band to be filed under "shoulda been huge".
