Poor buggers! They're getting on in years, you know! I'm not surprised their Saturday set is shorter than it used to be!  Smiley

2002 was definitely still 4 hours. It was my first one, so that I remember clearly. Still have that glittery hat of Peggy's in my collection.. Cheesy
It changed quickly after that to 3 1/2, in 2003 or 2004.

They used to do a proper Cropredy set, not just a skightly rehashed wintour set with a guest appearance.
What was the year when they finished Matty before 1145 and admitted they had run out of material before they could start MOTL?

Slightly off topic, but still to do with the main Fairport set, I seem to remember more "special guests" appearing with them during the set in my early years (started going at the beginning of the 90's). People like Joe Brown, Robert Plant, Roy Wood, Ian Anderson & Martin Barre, and the guy from Supertramp (Roger Hodgson was it ?), not just ex Fairport members or artists who'd been on earlier in the day/weekend.

They can't win really - when Percy did that fantastic set within a set in '93 (after his briefer appearance the year before) there was loads of criticism in some circles. It was always a high point for me.  Apart from Yusuf.  For whatever reason, I didn't enjoy that.

The '93 set also included a lengthy Roy Wood set, which was also fab, but that left little time for Fairport stuff. I didn't complain, mind.

He didn't have far to come. I think he lives in Cropredy nowadays.

Not quite...I'm thinking more about guests who did, effectively, a mini set within the Fairport set. If memory serves Joe Brown did one song. It's not a criticism, by the way, just an observation.I guess, going back to the original topic, shorter Fairport sets leave less time for longer guest slots.

Must be time for a Roy Wood return?
