Not the 2021 Winter Tour – But a brilliant memento of Fairport Convention’s last show pre-lockdown
This week, we have Ric Sanders joining us at the barrier. Having played with Soft Machine and The Albion Band, Ric has been a member of Fairport Convention since the early 80’s. These are his thoughts on Percy Grainger, the great song collector.
Chris Leslie picks up where Dave Pegg left off in our Fairport Convention Why I Love series. Here, he shares his love of American mandolinist, David Grisman.
The Fairport Wintour is in motion and a good chunk of the team, including several Fairport/Cropredy vets have been in attendance sometime, somewhere. Here we look back on the opening of the tour in Southport, a stop in Manchester and a sojourn to Bath.
