Subject: RE: Fairport at Twickenham - 19th March
A lovely night, well done the organisers!

It's a lovely venue (seating about 500 in mobile raked terracing). Bar prices comparable to a hotel though (not much change from a fiver for either a pint or glass of house red). I suppose they're normally dealing with corporate beanos who don't pay much attention to such details. Don't think it was lost on the Cropredy regulars in attendance of course

I haven't seen Fairport locally for about 15 years (last time was at greatly missed Brentford Watermans Theatre). They haven't changed much in the interim! Currently it's Simon Nicol, Ric Sanders, Dave Pegg, Chris Leslie and Gerry Conway. They did a lot of songs from their latest album including a couple of crackers by Ralph McTell and Chris While. There was still time for a few chestnuts though ('Who Knows Where The Time Goes', 'Crazy Man Michael', 'Matty Groves' and 'Meet On The Ledge')
