Thread Name: Fairport/Steeleye - unequal respect?
Subject: RE: Fairport/Steeleye - unequal respect?

I love both Steeleye & more recently Pentangle.
As to Steeleye v FC Dad always preferred the former, so did I. They were played loads; I never seemed to hear any Fairport. Dad was crying during Steeleye's last gig, he hardly ever cries . We can't imagine living in a world w/o said band, although one day we're going to have to. I could talk about them all day. I friggin love 'em.

I don't care about them having no website cos there's various ways to find out which dates are near me; nor am I bothered whether the venues are half empty as long as I can get there, w/ whoever wants to come w/ me (people don't exactly queue up) it's actually a lot easier for me to get to empty venues cos there's more chance of a wheelchair space. I would've liked the Spanorak (hoody) though. If they had merchandise I'd be skint.

I agree heard Maddy's hare song as a little girl & cos she said "I" I thought she was referring to herself. Was always in awe of/in love w/ her voice (& perhaps her as well) & when I met her I shook like a leaf.
