I wanted to enjoy this but survived/endured about 45 mins before the weather won out and I retired back to the car.

My partner thought I waited at least 30 minutes to long before giving up and by the time we left the arena the area around me was largely empty with a stream of people heading back to the tents/car park.

Maybe if the weather had been kinder I would have stayed and listened but where we were (level with the sound tent) the sound was highly variable and we could not make out any of the lyrics.

If (as someone stated) this is where the booking money went for me at least it could have been better spent.

We bailed as soon as RT finished, as we were wet and cold plus a few other factors.

Had it been a balmy evening we may have stayed. I just had a look on YouTube and he sounds fabulous.

He's an old Etonian too, if that means anything.

He is a proper frontman, and really knows how to work a crowd, and has the great songs to back up his antics. Shame that the weather emptied much of the field but he gave it a go and was every bit as good as I expected. The two new songs he did at the radio tent were terrific as well.

The crowd down the front was more energetic and engaged than any I can remember at Croppers.

I hope they ask him back in a dry year.  


100% agree.  Loved their energy, enjoyed their music (I'd never heard of them, so didn't know what to expect) and was touched by how genuinely excited he was to be playing Cropredy.  8/10 and when are they in Cardiff next?

Probably the highlight of this year's festival for me, even if we did leave a little bit before the end. I'll have to go and see him again.

I listened for a few numbers, and it sounded really good, but by then I was wet, cold, and my back was telling me that it didn't want to work anymore. Hopefully I will get another chance. Unfortunately, chose the AfroCelts at Wickham, knowing I would see him at Cropredy.

Ce le vie.

Best Act at this years Cropredy by a country mile, only a brilliant set from Richard Thompson ran them close.

Shame so many missed it because of the driving rain and strong wind.
