I'm not sure that the point of the guest is to be a draw, but a treat for those who are there.

The usual thing is a solo artist before Fairport to avoid a change over of instruments and amps as so on.
Daltrey would require a band, unless he's ever done an acoustic set with him playing a geetar, or maybe another guitarist.

I'm thinking it will be more along the lines of Jasper Carrot's surprise set a few years ago..maybe Bill Bailey or someone similar.


Exactly my thoughts. All those hoping for a big name band or singer who will do a full set are going to be disappointed.  It'll only be a 20-30 min thing, maybe with a couple of fairporters joining them for one or two numbers.

or could they have been waiting for Oysterband's announcement before making their own?

What are the chances of it being Roger Hodgson? I'd love that!! It's
 been a while since he last played Cropredy...
2000 was it?

It would be lovely to see him again. However he is 73 and hasn't toured since 2019 as far as I know.

But I've by no means kept up with him in the past few years so... who knows?

I think I've got it! Bryn Terfel has just released an album of folk songs. Maybe it'll be him doing a little spot?

At least it won't be Lulu, who has just announced her retirement in April.

I see Fairground Attraction are reforming for a tour shortly after Eddi Reader’s appearance at Cropredy.
I wonder if this means we could actually be getting Fairground Attraction.

I'd be amazed if it was...do you really think "the three blokes in Fairground Attraction" warrant that much attention?  Bit harsh maybe but...

A valid point, to be honest I wouldn’t know the difference!

Unlikely, given that Abbotsbury in July is being heralded as their proper final appearance before their indefinite break.

If it was anybody big ( Plant , even RT etc) they would have announced it to enhance ticket sales . No it will probably be some extended member of the Fairport family……Ashley Hutchings ? Etc

I'm fairly certain I'm right in saying RT has never not been properly announced.  There's always a first time though.  Can't think he'd add many on to audience though?

Surely the idea of not doing the big reveal in advance is that folk might take a punt on it being Thompy, or Ian Anderson, or James Taylor, or David Essex?

However if the idea was to increase ticket sales ,Simons appeal would tend to imply that hasn’t worked….
