NEW!! 'Fairport @ Forty' sampler clip!
We've produced a mini-documentary about Fairport's Cropredy Convention with help from TV director Mike Rowbottom.
It captures the unique atmosphere of our festival through interviews and music clips. The footage was shot on the campsites, concert field and backstage.
If you haven't been to Cropredy before, you can see what it's like by watching the nine-minute video on the Cropredy section of our website here.
The Word has long been among our favourite music magazines. And, by happy coincidence, Fairport's Cropredy Convention is one of Word Editor Mark Ellen's favourite festivals.
As an adjunct to its news-stand magazine, The Word's website features a regular podcast and the current one is devoted to Cropredy headliners Supergrass.
On the eve of the release of the band's new album 'Diamond Hoo Ha', Supergrass members Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey chat with The Word's David Hepworth and Mark Ellen, gossiping about the difference between busking and begging, the importance of a right hand man and studios you can only get to by boat. Unsurprisingly, Cropredy slips into the conversation; in fact, Mark Ellen describes it as "...one of the friendliest events I've ever been to."
