An actor's life for me...
It was really great to play at Fairport Convention's Cropredy Convention. The festival had a wonderful vibe and was sold out. As my band's soundcheck was in the morning, we had several hours to enjoy the atmosphere and get to chat to people. Sunshine, patchouli, flowers for the hair, exotic hats and colourful clothes made from Indian saris... It felt like being back again in the magical late sixties era of love and peace.
Our set kicked off early evening and the crowd reaction was brilliant. It was amazing how many people sang along to some of the songs. We were moved and excited by the whole event.
My thanks to Dave Pegg, all the Fairport team and agents for making this possible. It was a terrific day to remember!
