They're the main part of Beautiful South.
Re headliners, yes I agree they could and should be, but I also think their style of music would go down very nicely in the late Friday or Saturday afternoon feelgood slot.


I do find it very odd how they've taken off.  I saw Paul Heaton playing in a pub with about 100 others about 5 years ago.

I see Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott touring next year. Would be a lovely lazy sunbaked saturday afternoon slot...


What? They are headliners not support.

DW
Really?  Shocked
Never heard of them ...


They are very British, i dont know if The Housemartins,Heatons first band, and the Beautiful South, his second band which Abbot was a vocalist for,  had much of a profile in't States.  They now make records and tour together.  They are quite popular in Blighty.

As the 2020 line-up already contains lots of acts I’ve already seen, there are couple more I’d like to see again that would go down well at Cropredy....The Trials of Cato and Tears for Fears

 They managed to sell 5,000 tickets at Thetford Forest, headlined Beautiful Days in 2017 (which sold out), they’re doing arenas (and two nights at The Palladium) on their next tour but, yeah, whatever, if you think Trevor Horn is a bigger draw, that’s a point I’m willing to concede.

“As a duo” might give the impression that I’m *not* referring there to Mr Horn’s big band....but actually Heaton & Abbott. Also the subject of the post above the one you quoted?

Interestingly, that duo *aren’t* listed in the email from FC...so I wonder if they are actually booked?

Check facts first.  They sell out arenas, and large outdoor one-offs.

I tried to get tickets for the Albert Hall. Not a chance.

Whilst in lockdown I was checking out bands I’d seen who were cropredyesque to coin a phrase.
A band I think some may enjoy are the Kruger brothers three very talented musicians who I was lucky enough to see last year.

Lots of stuff on YouTube but a good starting point for forumites would be their excellent (imo) cover of streets of London and their own song Carolina in the fall

Let me know what you think.

I’ve always thought that James would go down a storm as a Thursday night headliner. Loads of great anthemic songs, with a fair chunk of the audience knowing at least a couple of their big hits (feel free to insert your own Sit Down’ joke here!!)

And Adrian from Oysterband is the current lead guitarist.

He's been in them off and on for the best part of 25 years hasn't he?

If we are indeed looking ahead to 2022 Cropredy (as next year is already full), I have always thought Simple Minds, Deacon Blue, or Beautiful South would go down well. All big hitters in crowd pleasing numbers, and would bring the much needed audience numbers for a Thursday night headline.

I didn't think I'd like them at all but really enjoyed them at Skeggy 2018. However they blotted their copybook by their noisy uncouth behaviour in the Sky Bar when the next act was on, meaning we had to move away to hear anything.

You should try being in the Golden Lion Port Isaac when they are in attendance.  Shocked
Very noisy but great fun. Beautiful place described by locals as a drinking village with a fishing problem
