Strangely, they've put a May 21 date in at the Union Chapel - second time in 5 months?....hmmm. £26 a pop


Yes the May date was announced, Spring tour I imagine. I too commented that prices do seem rather steep. No doubt the set list will be similar for the 'acoustic' show? †Wink Peggy said it will be after his hip (h)op †Grin and the band will appear a bit more huddled together... †Roll Eyes

I've booked to see FC in Pentyrch, near Cardiff, on 23rd May. It's definitely part of the Spring Tour.

Really enjoyed Tunbridge Wells tonight, it's a barn of a place but the lads seemed in great spirits despite a brief problem with the sound. The 'rhythm section' were on particularly good form, don't remember hearing a livelier Gallivant, and overall a well chosen mixture of old and new.

Perhaps the best Wintour set in recent years at St Albans last night. Thoroughly enjoyable. Has Peggy damaged his back or is it old age creeping up?

Iíve checked Setlist.fm and there are a couple of songs in there I genuinely canít understand why theyíre persisting with.

Let's just say that there are a couple of recent songs which* don't really match up to the calibre of those which surround them. I speak from a position of thorough approval of things like The Gallivant, Clear Water, Weightless, John Condon et al, which I consider some of their best work, not just recently, but of their career, so it's not really a case of Play Some Old!


*IMHO, OOAA.

Every band has fillers. Rare for every song to be a classic. True, Fairport have enough in their back catalogue to not need to trot out the lesser songs, but hey, they might feel they are suitable. At least they don't return to London River or Gold!!!

Wish I could get along to a Wintour gig this year, but I don't think it's going to happen.  Maybe the acoustic tour though.
