    Fairport Convention and Richard Digence amongst others are appearing at the 11th. Wirral Folk Festival in June,
    Could be a good preview for Cropedy see website for details esp on site camping.

    Never ever been a fan of C&D, but you never know, may get caught up in the festival spirit, or have a few more Weston's 6% ciders, or we might be stood downwind from some old hippies smoking Morrocan Woodbines, that might just swing it :)

    Have a look at the Music Gigs and Festivals group. We've already got a discussion running for Cropredy showing all who are attending.

    Been trying to make this festival for a while wont be this year I think not the best lineup.
    Should have gone when Seasick Steve was there one of the best acts they've ever had.

    See 'Groups' in the menu bar across the top of the window. If on a phone or tablet, look for the button with the three horizontal bars to expand the menu.

    For a direct link, click here.
    Then Discussions.

    Saw Fairport at Celtic Connections last month, and thought about going to Cropredy. Don't remember any mention of C&D though, is it a big enough event that they could be easily avoided?;-)

    It is, but you won't need to. C&D were last year. This thread now covers two years! :unsure:

    Ah, didn't notice that. That'll be why there was no mention then. :)

    We have been there for the last 12 years and were going to give it a miss this year, unless there was someone outstanding in the line up. But now we have seen the line up we are glad we are not going, very poor for us this year. Maybe next year though.

    really wishing that i'd gone last year, from what i remember seeing it was right up my street..
    from pics that i've seen it has certainly grown into quite a large festival now, personally i do prefer the smaller ones, tend to get a bit panicky with large crowds..:imoutahere:
    used to hitchhike up to a tiny folk club in st albans in the late '60's when my ex hubby was at hort and ag college there to hear dave swarbrick play that fiddle along with martin carthy, lovely memories..
