The YouTube channel for Saturday night at Virtual Cropredy starts at 7:25pm Click Here

19.25 Stream begins
19.30 Toast to 'Absent Friends'
19.35 Richard Thompson - Cropredy 2019
with special guests Zara Phillips, Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg and Dave Mattacks
21.05 Postcards from the band
21.15 T Shirt Montage
21.20 Message from the Fairport Office.
21.26 Fairport Convention and Friends - Cropredy 2019.

Just in case anybody is wondering what 'The Toast' is.

Well it started fifteen years ago, with members of TalkAwhile gathering at the Cropredy bar to remember somebody we had lost that year and over the years this has become all inclusive, not only remembering people from the Cropredy family, but also those lost to individuals.

The toast is 'Absent Friends'.

This year has been especially hard and so the toast has to be done, even though we can't be there. So it will be in the official Fairport stream. There will be a short history of the tradition, but will finish with the toast. Everybody please be there and raise your glasses.

At the toast, traditionally there is a collection for the Teenage Cancer Trust. This year please donate at www.toast.org.uk

Thanks Yabb, all set up now, though I don't have anything horrible to toast with!

This wasn't the hanky waving, I believe thats something to do with radio Oxford but I'm not certain, It was Richard singing and sharing some thoughts with us, it is available on his facebook page.

Yes, I knew they werenít together but just seeing RD was doing a bit this morning reminded me, I forgot to post our video for the hanky waving.


I googled Richard Digance we are searching Cropredy 2020 and Google turned it into ĎWe are searching for PREY 2020Ē  Grin

I thought his instrumental piece at the end mentioning many people who we have lost was very poignant and moving...have to admit it brought a tear to my eye

Great to see the RT set. Missed it last year due to slight tent-blown-down problems.  Happy memories  Shocked  Smiley

I'm just paused for a second after Chris Leslie's postcard.
Ric mentioning Jude has got me all watery of the eye, so I'll take a mo to raise a glass to her (  Kiss ) and all of you (it's  Jack Daniel's Tennessee Apple - I shouldn't be drinking - but what the heck - I can't decide if it's gross enough to qualify as a toast drink, mind you.)
It was a treat to be able to see R.T's set and, I'm sure, F.C's in a bit, as I was stuck in my tent in Field 4 last year missing it all.
Cheers everyone,
Love and cuddles !

It has been a glorious day, but a sea-haar engulfed us during RTís set so itís like something from James Herbert now. I will blame the maestro, of course  Smiley

Enjoying the show.

Mike - no, it's not gross enough - but hey, who's watching?! Take care, and we'll see you next year!

This is really great; sitting in the garden, projector on, beer at hand, and WhatsApp chat with my usual Cropredy gang who are scattered around the country. Loved the toast, and hereís to you lot and better times next year.

Maarts tribute brought tears... missed most of it last year cos of a bunch  of entitled snowflakes who strolled in from the sidelines cos they wanted to see the screen (by blocking the view of twice their number.)
It.'s amazing the little details missed at the time, great to see it in all its detail and glory now.
And i was thinking back to last year, a lot of people had to reluctantly pack up and go home before the Fairport' set cos their tents had been destroyed  - so hopefully they're watching now...

Loving every minute, strange how much we missed from last year,but we were situated in a wind tunnel near the generators and the wind was affecting the sound. Think I may be about tearful at the end....
