Tony Christie is actually on Thursday.  

I can think of a few people I'd like the Special Surprise Guest to be, so it probably won't be any of them!

Whoops, silly me!

Same here, Will.  I assume "guest" implies a solo appearance...

It usually is, so they can get the stage set up for Fairport earlier and just have to move a mic or two.  I wonder if it might be a comedian, like they had some years back?  I forget exactly who it was though!

Tony Christie did an album (The Great Irish Songbook) with Ranagri, who are playing on Saturday, so I wonder whether they came together as a package?

Tony Christie, Ben Savage & Hannah Sanders, the Zac Schulze Gang - all added to Saturday's line-up, plus "our Special Surprise Guest who will take the stage on Saturday evening immediately before Fairport Convention’s marathon closing set. Who can it be?"




Hmmm…Think I’ll give Thursday a skip this year and rock up for Friday/Saturday..

I can't help thinking if the Special Surprise Guest is really special, they'd surely announce a name to maybe sell more tickets?

And if it's Richard or Ralph that's hardly a surprise

Guessing Gerry Conway.

On second thought, he falls under the umbrella of "and friends." But so would RT I would think.

From the billing on the poster, I guess everyone surmises the "Special Surprise Guest" will do his/her/their own set?

Presumably announcing a "Special Surprise Guest"  gives leeway for contract negotiations and, indeed, the possibility that the SSG's identity may change.


My Guess? Steve Knightley.

He's been on so many times he can't qualify as a special guest, he's like a cousin in residence.

My money is on Martin Carthy as "Special Surprise Guest". They don't come more special than this particular legend.
