Live: Cropredy Convention
Venue: Cropredy Village, Oxfordshire
Fairport's annual convention returns to the Oxfordshire countryside.
The annual folk and roots festival can put plenty of its attendees down to its PQ (prog quotient). First there’s Fish, third on the bill on Friday evening, on his Farewell To Childhood tour, performing, in its entirety, Marillion’s Misplaced Childhood. This will be, he announces, the last ever open-air rendering of the opus. It’s bookended by various Fish and Marillion tracks: Pipeline and Long Cold Day at one end and Market Square Heroes and The Company at the other.
