Thought they were brilliant and it was as good a performance as I ever heard from them, since I was first introduced by my mate in the early 90s.

The voices of our 'favourite' folkies are not going to be the same forever or even as we remember, they have to adapt and as they age maybe they need to change key to sing certain songs. I often feel there are some songs that can no longer be visited. I like to remember a lot of bands and singers as they were back in the day, therefore for me the CD is my best friend! I keep my Cropredy years in my heart as a very special time, my fave years were the Maart years and that's where I'm staying!  Wink

I love the chaps , have done since the late 60's. But time moves on.

Peggy remains a top draw bass player. Long may he continue.But ,he shouldn't lead sing.

Simon still sings Ralph and Chris songs very ,very well.

But Sandy songs need a female voice, Wasn't John The Gun good with band playing and Sally Barker singing.

More of that and the band can go on for years yet.

I loved the set, and huge thanks to every member of my Fave band.

There were extreme weather circumstances this year which almost caused the festival to be cancelled, so if anyone’s voice was a bit off maybe they should be given a bit of slack?


Well said Jenny

Just have to say.

What a great set Fairport played - one of the best and a fitting tribute to Maart.

Reminded me of seeing Lindisfarne when Rod Clements introduced 'Train in G Major' and said it had now been re-titled 'Train in E Major' due to the march of time.  Grin
