Thursday 11th June: Fairport Convention

Fairport Convention photographed in November 2016. The band celebrated its fiftieth anniversary on 27 May 2017.

It is our privilege to welcome back Fairport to Newnham Live. They played their first concert in a church hall in 1967, rehearsing in Simon Nicoll’s family home named Fairport. They can be attributed with the creation of folk rock reviving traditional materials with modern instrumentations and rhythms. They disbanded in 1979; but fortunately for us they reformed in 1985 and their current line up has been together for 11 years. They are the creators of the annual Summer Cropredy Festival.
