I thought it may be Roger Daltrey the way they put ‘Who can it be?’.

Then I remembered the word ‘who’ can be used for people other than members of The Who.

Percy would be lovely...I expect people would love to see him-but I also wondered, could it just be an extra appearance from the Maestro, RT?

My money is on Martin Carthy as "Special Surprise Guest". They don't come more special than this particular legend.
As long as he has someone with him onstage to help him stay on track. He's a lovely chap.

It would be a unique situation in the 4.5 decades long history of Cropredy if it was...I'm fairly certain I'm right in saying he's never just "turned up" without being billed.  I'm fairly certain that his appearance adds guaranteed bums on seats as well, so there would appear to be little logic in the approach?

If it is someone big, then the reason for not naming them may be that they will only get a short (half-hour?) slot (plus maybe a couple of songs with Fairport), but they don't want people turning up expecting a full set from, say, Mr Plant, and then complaining that they didn't get their money's worth.  Just a thought.

Candidates:  Plant, Yusuf, Winwood, Wood, Anderson.  Any others?  Hodgson again maybe...all again, actually although Winwood has never guested.

Can't really see the James Taylor but we know how much Peggy at least has wanted that one...

Winwood was there in 2009....(I remember because a small child was lifted up onto the parent’s shoulder in front of me and I was gutted as I could not see properly). Roll Eyes

Some interesting guesses here, but come on, this is Cropredy.

It'll be Anna Ryder or someone who used to be in Tiny Tin Lady. Outside chance of one or more Pierce brother.

I've been thinking about this a bit. There used to be a surprise, un-billed guest every year.
Then in 93 there was Planty AND Roy Wood, doing about half an hour or so each, resulting in complaints that there was less time for FC, so in 1994, there was no guest.
However, when they played Adieu, Adieu, they said 'we nicked the intro for this next one from The 'Oo', and did little snippets of Substitute, My Generation and a big chunk of Won't Get Fooled Again, with Maart singing, which rocked and the crowd went nuts.
Then we got Happy Jack and Adieu Adieu...

Maybe we might get Daltry AND Townsend - Pete was mates with Sandy.

Maybe not both - it say guest singular - but it could be Pete.

I'd err with the side that it would be Roge, if either?
