First Acts Announced for Cropredy 2018!!
We are delighted to announce our first acts for Cropredy 2018! We shall be announcing the full line-up in the New Year.
Headlining our Friday night we welcome the return of Cropredy favourites - Levellers. Next year sees their 30th anniversary and we can't wait to join in the celebrations!
What happened last year? Where was he? It just wasn't the same was it? Well thankfully Richard Digance is returning for 2018. We missed you Richard!
We have been inundated with requests to bring Al Stewart back to Cropredy. Who can forget his stunning set in 2014? Al will be playing immediately before Fairport on Saturday evening.
One of the most popular artists we have had at Cropredy in recent years has been Scotland's finest prog-meister - FISH. FISH will be touring next year highlighting his last Marillion album 'Clutching at Straws' on it's 30th anniversary and presenting his new album 'Weltschmerz', so look out for that.
Le Vent Du Nord will be appearing for the first time on the Cropredy stage. A leading force in Quebec's progressive Francophone folk movement, the band's repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions.
Also making a first appearance at Cropredy are Sam kelly and The Lost Boys. Sam is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who transcends the boundaries of traditional and popular music.
As always, Cropredy will present a set by the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards winner.
As mentioned earlier, we shall be announcing the full line-up in the New Year.
Weekend tickets for Cropredy 2018 are now on sale here. The first 1000 orders will receive a Christmas Card signed by Fairport and the first 2000 orders will receive a souvenir Car Sticker.
We shall be selling the two day and one day tickets once the full line-up has been announced.
