Well I guess some of us have spiritual homes after all, I don’t mean to gush but there really is something about that field in Oxfordshire. Cropredy is one of those places that going back to feels like going home. Three days of music in a field with like minded people. Te original festival was more like being invited to your friends party. It is a little more organized now but not too much more. the defining reason for the festival is Fairport Convention not some pseudo mystical reason, it’s a festival about music, there are those who miss this but they are poorer for it.
