I had never heard of him but I recognized many of the songs and really enjoyed his set.

Very enjoyable. The bloke on keys was a good singer I thought.

Cregan & Co were the Trevor Horne Band of this year playing well known and much loved songs that Jim Cregan had featured on in the past. This appeared to go down very well with everybody singing along. I really enjoyed them.

Can someone tell me why artists like Cregan & Co take all their CDs with them when they leave? I wandered into the.CD tent on Saturday casually considering getting a Cregan & Co CD but was informed that they’d taken them all so bit disappointed about that (apparently Midnight Skyracer did the same)

Really enjoyable especially the Come Up and See Me solo which brought back very happy memories. Also the Fairport mandolin Orchestra Maggy May!

I was getting a bit tired of 'Rod Stewart in his girlie years'...then they redeemed themselves with Maggie May and the amazing mandolin outtro. Lovely.

Thoroughly enjoyed them. The singer/piano player was right up my street - loved him. Enjoyed the selection of songs and had a good singalong too.  Great stuff  Smiley

Enjoyable singalong stuff.
I understand he co-wrote  lot of Rod Stewart’s song, so I guess he has as much right to sing the songs.

Probably even more so than the Trevor Horn Band last year in what they did but I loved both acts  Grin

Really enjoyed this set. So good to hear the "come up and see me smile" solo played by the original musician!  Grin I love the quote from Rod stewart that says - "if you cant afford my ticket go see these guys they're  just as good and half the price !"

Enjoyed them from my seat, but they weern't quite as good as Trevor Horn band for me.  Maybe just because I wasn't so familiar with the songs?

Brilliant set, really enjoyed hearing all the old songs. Singer was good as well.

Good to hear Fairport playing John Peel's mandolin solo.  Wink Wink Grin

Never having heard of Mr Cregan, I didn't know what to expect.  Mike (Bridgwit's Long Suffering) said Rod Stewart. I grimaced, not being keen on the skinny, much-married croaker. I then proceeded to sing along and enjoy myself throughout the entire set, especially Come Up and See Me. Didn't see Trevor Horn, so couldn't compare, but thought this was great.
