Subject: RE: Fairport on BBC4 Tonight
I caught the 10pm concert by chance. I was thoroughly impressed by the superb standard of the instrumental playing but, I have to say, I was slightly less than impressed by the vocal performances - some feeble singing and what sounded like off-key parts here and there to me.

My wife emerged from the kitchen at one point and said, "Who's doing that dreadful singing?" - so I wasn't entirely alone in my view. And before I get a hail of irate ripostes I should add that I have great respect for the music of FC - but I've heard them sing better than that on other occasions.
