Looks like Vikki Clayton has been added to the Fringe bill.


Not managed to make it to the main bill then.
She has the contacts in the band. When she put her pleas onto the Fairporters page to be back on the Cropredy stage, that probably indicated she hadn't had a totally positive response from other contacts. Which is a shame, but there's a lot of people clamouring to be one of only 18 acts on one stage. The fringe is a good compromise and will show whether her appeal is good enough for the Cropredy stage another year.

Just looking at her website. It is 16 years since her last album and others here will know the date of her last Cropredy appearance, when there was a regular 'Sandy spot'. I have a very long memory and recall reading, on a programme or a sleeve note, that someone had told her to go solo and 'leave that band' or words to that effect. Maybe there was a bit of friction? It is a long time ago.

She has a new album "Messenger" out at the moment. https://www.vikkiclayton.info/store

Was her last appearance with The Nerve ? In other words Fotheringay-ish ? I say that, because the thing about going solo and leaving that band sounds like what Joe Boyd told Sandy after the Fotheringay album. Maybe you're remembering a quote about that in the programme for that year, which may make sense considering the context.

That's possible. I no longer have any old programmes, I'm afraid.

Vikki played with her full band in 2001, guested with FC in 2002 for the 35th anniversary (singing loads) and again in 2007 for the 40th anniversary (singing "One More Chance"). Not sure if she's appeared since.

I think her last listing (as a guest) is 2008 http://fclist.org/cropredy-cropredy-line-ups/cropredy-2008

To my tastes, looks a middling bill, but I do fancy seeing Edward II & Gerry Colvin again. See Home Service twice at festivals, found them disappointing both times, and I'll always pass on any band with "Morris" in their name. Let's see what else is added.

Can't find anything about Banter, anyone heard them?

Final day of the BST concerts in Hyde Park is announced - Paul Simon, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt and others tba.  Sounds great, but a friend says that tickets are about £111 a day - that's almost the same as all three days at Cropredy!  I'd love to see Paul Simon and James Taylor, but at that price I won't be going Sad

1982 Wembley Stadium.  You got Art as well, and it cost you £10 (or £24.68 in today's money).  Only one thing to do...and that's say 'no'.

It's all very well to tell me now...  35 years too late!  

Had a look this morning, and general admission is £75 (+ a £10 'service charge'!).  If you want to be right up the front, it's a whopping £250!

Or buy their greatest hits albums for £6 or less (each) on Amazon. If you haven't already got them.

Since I do have those albums, I'll listen for free, that evening.

Just saw this talked about elsewhere.  I can imagine one or two around here might be interested?
