Fairport's Cropredy Festival Begins and Life is Good

August 9th, 2007

The Fairport Convention Cropredy Folk Festival has begun with a bang. If there is a common thread in our music, it’s the people. Sure, the tunes, songs, playing, and singing are what brings us all together, but once you begin to meet the artists and fans, one thing is certain, in an odd way, we’re all family and friends. An instant connection is made first through the sounds in the air, but suddenly you realize complete strangers are really your next door neighbors. I’ve met people from all over England, America, Denmark, Ireland, Wales and Scotland. We have all gathered in an open field in the English countryside for a reason. And that reason is Fairport Convention. It was a blistering hot day at the festival and we can expect more of the same the entire weekend. Today I interviewed Ashley Hutchings, the founding member of Fairport, Chris Leslie, Dave Pegg and a great young band Kerfuffle. I will be posting all my interviews on this page throughout the next three days, along with reflections, reviews, and pictures. The beer is flowing, faces are smiling, feet are tapping, and life is just too good. An extra special thanks to my new mate Huw Pryce--we're sharing the picture taking and he's been an amazing host.

Interview with founding Fairport member Ashley Hutchings

August 9th, 2007

Ashley Hutchings is a living legend. As an electric bass player, it's amazing how he changed the face of folk music when he founded the three biggest bands in the English Folk tradition--The Albion Band, Steeleye Span, and of course Fairport Convention. I had an opportunity to speak with the "father of British Folk-Rock" backstage at the 2007 Fairport Cropredy Festival. His new band is called Rainbow Chasers--they played a show Wednesday night at a "secret gig" Huw and I found by asking the right people. Listen to the interview below now.

Seth Lakeman at Cropredy

August 9th, 2007

English Folk Music is in good hands. As a member of the now defunct band Equation, Seth Lakeman is the new young energy in the English Folk Tradition. In 2007, he won 'Singer of the Year' and 'Best Album' awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Like the early bands in the English Folk-Rock tradition of the 1970's, Seth has brought the music to a whole new younger audience. In America, young string bands are everywhere--in England, the young tradition is just as strong. Seth's appeal is a rocked out acoustic grooved based texture of original songs set in the tradition of English Folk. We've been playing material from his most recent record lately on Folk Alley called "Freedom Fields" and I finally had a chance to see him live. He was a crowd favorite Thursday night with a set of truly energetic and original material. My bud Huw Pryce was also blown away by the performance and especially the bass player's open hand slapping technique. Unfortunately, Seth had to leave right after his gig to catch a plane to Canada. Even though I wasn't able to interview him, I wanted you to see just how hard he was working--just look at the sweat on his back. He was absolutely driven on stage, grabbing each instrument like a weapon and singing with crazed eyes. His new record comes out in September.

Interview with Fairport Member Chris Leslie

August 9th, 2007

Chris Leslie might be one of the nicest guys I know. His songwriting has become a standard in the Fairport repertoire and his high vocals, mandolin, and fiddle skills are equally impressive. An amazing story really--he was a Fairport fan growing up and now an official member of the band. I had a chance to sit down with Chris at Cropredy 2007. Listen to the interview below.

August 10th, 2007

There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said about the great Dave Pegg. He's been a member of Fairport since 1970 when he joined on the "Full House" record. I caught up with him backstage at Cropredy 2007 for a chat. Check out the interview right now. Thanks Peggy!

Interview with Kerfuffle

August 10th, 2007

The young energy was in full force Thursday at Cropredy. The young quartet Kerfuffle started performing and making records five years ago, when they were just 14 years old. Their most recent effort is called "Links." The band remembers attending Cropredy as 'kids' and their enthusiasm for this music, Fairport, and this festival shines on this interview. I had a chance to sit down with Kerfuffle backstage at Cropredy 2007 for a quick interview before we all went off to see Seth Lakeman. The young folk scene in the UK is strong and vital. Kerfuffle might just be the future of this music. Check out the interview below and their three albums "Not to Scale," "K2," and "Links."

Wishbone Ash at Cropredy 2007

August 10th, 2007

The generation range at Cropredy is amazing, not only in the crowd, but on-stage as well. Wishbone Ash rounded out the classic and tried true on Thursday with their set of rocked-out songs from the past 30 years of their history. Likened in the early years to American dual guitar outfit The Allman Brothers, Wishbone Ash quickly defined their own sound and produced a series of excellent rock records--most notably "Wishbone Ash," "Pilgrimage," and "Argus." Here are some pics from their set Thursday at Cropredy.

Friday at Fairport Convention's Cropredy 2007 Festival

August 10th, 2007

Not only was the crowd at least double in size today at Cropredy, but the atmosphere, vibe, and people were beyond amazing. It was a mini Woodstock with traffic backed up for miles and miles. Today I spoke with Iain Mathews, Judy Dyble, Last Orders, Ric Sanders, Gerry Conway and Dave Cousins. All the interviews are posted on this blog. Musically, the highlight tonight was the 1969 Fairport Convention line-up performing “Liege & Lief” in its entirety. Here they all were, Richard Thompson, Dave Swarbrick, Dave Mattacks, Simon Nicol, Ashley Hutchings, and Chris While singing for Sandy Denny, all on the same stage, thirty-seven years after making the album. This is something none of the 20,000+ people at Cropredy will ever witness again. Luckily, it was recorded for future release. I saw people crying, especially at the opening lines of “Come All Ye,” as the audience sang along to every word. Seeing Dave Swarbrick in full health is so great. He was on death’s bed years ago after receiving a liver and lung transplant, often playing in a wheelchair with oxygen. I’m happy to announce he was standing, dancing and breathing the same air as all of us. Here are some pictures from Friday at Fairport’s Cropredy Festival 2007. What an amazing day!

Interview with Last Orders

August 11th, 2007

In the US and Canada, there is no doubt a resurgence of young bands playing traditional based music. From The Duhks, Steppin' In It, Hot Buttered Rum, Chris Thile, Uncle Earl, and so many others, our music is alive and well. At this year's Cropredy, the young UK folk force is in full swing. Not only did Seth Lakeman and Kerfuffle demonstrate this, but also the band Last Orders, winners of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Musicians of the Year Award. Their prize for winning: to play Cropredy in front of over 20,000 people. I spoke with the band near the bar for a quick impromptu interview.

The Last Day at Cropredy

August 12th, 2007

The closing day of the Cropredy festival on Saturday was another day of brilliant music. Iain Matthews, Strawbs, and of course Fairport Convention were the highlights of the day. This was by far the biggest Cropredy Festival in the event’s history. Not only was it the first time the event sold out before the weekend, but according to festival regulars, they have never seen the event this full before. One has to wonder why this year was so successful. Some might say being the 40th Anniversary of the band has something to do with it. This is clearly true. However, I think there might be more here. Something is happening to our music all over the world. Its popularity is certainly on the rise. Some might argue that its wishful thinking, but seeing the success of festivals is proof that the music is reaching more people than ever before. Not only is the young resurgence alive and well in the States and Canada, but this year’s Cropredy festival proves its happening in the UK too. From older folk fans to children in their young years, the festival scene is strikingly familiar all over the world. One thing though is quite different from other events. This festival is first and foremost a celebration of the legacy and history of Fairport Convention. I cannot think of any other festival this size that dedicates itself to one band. Sure, there is the Kate Wolf Folk Fest or the Stan Rogers Festival, but these events are in celebration of fallen heroes who we lost far too soon. Fairport is anything but fallen--they are constantly making new records with a current line-up that’s been intact for years. They are not a nostalgia band that only rehashes the past; in fact, they seem more vital and popular than ever before. Extra special thanks to my English tour guide and pal Huw Pryce for taking many of the pictures in this blog—-snoring aside, Huw rocks. More thanks to the guys in Fairport for dealing with an annoying American who wanted interviews from everyone. When the sun set, interviewing every past and present member of Fairport was just about impossible. Plus, I was told off-limits to some like Richard Thompson. Shucks. From Cropredy, England, here are some pictures from Saturday. Enjoy!

Strawbs on Saturday

August 13th, 2007

In the mid 1960's, one can argue the very first English Folk-Rock record was recorded by the Strawbs when Sandy Denny was a member of the band. However, that album never got released until years later since Sandy left to join Fairport. Some might say that if Sandy Denny had never been a member of the Strawbs, Joe Boyd might not have discovered her for Fairport. The legacy of Fairport might not be as strong today if it hadn't been for Sandy Denny being a member of the group. If that's the case, then we owe a great deal to the Strawbs.

Strawbs started out as a bluegrass trio called the Strawberry Hill Boys, but eventually turned into a chart-topping rock band, both in the UK and the States. Strawbs music has always been difficult to describe. It's not folk and it's not really straight ahead rock either. There is this combination of different sounds that make the Strawbs stand out as one of the most original, creative, and important bands in the lexicon of English music. Their wasn't much Strawbs activity in the 80s and 90s, but when the band reformed as an acoustic trio in 2000, it all started again, with a number of records, tours of the world, and the formation of Witchwood Media.

The Strawbs played an amazing set of virtuosity and class at this year's Cropredy Festival. It was the 1974 "Hero and Heroin" line-up with Dave Cousins, Dave Lambert, Chas Cronk, John Hawkins, and Rod Coombes. Check out the pictures from the band's set on Saturday, along with my interview with Dave Cousins. Special thanks to the band's road manager Niel and Dave Cousins for being such great guys (and for buying me a pint.) When you're in the world of the Strawbs, life is good. "Round and Round we go..."

Fairport Convention--Saturday Night at Cropredy

August 13th, 2007

Fairport Convention took the stage Saturday night fifteen minutes early. Aren’t musicians supposed to be late? While walking to get a quick bite to eat, I suddenly heard Danny Thompson announcing the mighty Fairport. Food had to wait and I quickly ran as close to the stage as possible. Fairport played for close to 3½ hours with every living past member of the band. On stage were Simon Nicol, Ric Sanders, Dave Pegg, Gerry Conway, Chris Leslie, Martin Allcock, Dave Swarbrick, Jerry Donahue, Richard Thompson, Judy Dyble, Dave Mattacks, Iain Matthews, Ashley Hutchings and Vicky Clayton. The sound was crystal clear and quite loud—-the way it’s supposed to be. What an amazing experience to witness forty years of history in three hours. Everyone around me was having the time of their lives and it was clear Fairport was too. Because they went on early, Dave Pegg asked the crowd for requests so they didn’t run out of songs. We all shouted different tunes and the band ended up playing about four impromptu songs they didn’t rehearse. Simon Nicol forgot some of the lyrics to John Barleycorn—-which is reminiscent of the 25th Anniversary concert when he did the same thing. Considering they didn't rehearse the song prior to the show, I'm amazed he didn't forget more words. Behind the band, images and video accompanied the band's live performance and towards the end, even fireworks. In the states, I normally witness the band in small club settings. To see and hear over 20,000 people singing “Meet on the Ledge” was truly magical and emotional. All of this for a band with no major commercial success, no gold albums, no number one hit singles, no super stardom, and no “Top of the Pops” multi platinum egos. Afterwards, backstage was a party. Dave Pegg and the gang were hanging out in jam sessions, hugging friends and family and thanking everyone they could. If only all bands had this kind of charm and appeal. Thanks for an amazing weekend Fairport. Folk Alley will be back.

Visting the Cecil Sharp House

August 14th, 2007

The Cropredy festival is now over, but since I have a few extra days in London, today I decided to visit the Cecil Sharp House. For years I have been reading about this historic place, the man and his mission. I visited the library and had a stroll through its collection. Amazingly enough, the librarian was American and studies English Folk as a musicologist. Being a space cadet, I of course forgot her name, but we had a very nice chat about the collection and how she found this music. She told me I missed Maddy Prior from Steeleye Span by minutes. She was there today doing research. Just my luck! I didn’t have my recording gear with me and I would have been annoyed not being able to interview her, so maybe it was a good thing she left before I arrived. I wanted to see the sound library of recordings but it seemed you had to make an appointment to visit and listen to their archive. I was really hoping the sound collection would have been easily accessible with a few turntables for anyone to dig in, but the librarian seemed busy, and being a nice American boy, I decided not to ask to see it. I probably made a mistake. As I was snooping around, I opened an exit door where a young girl was sitting on the steps eating lunch. It turned out she worked there, which surprised me since she was probably in her mid twenties with a lip piercing—-not what I was expecting at the Cecil Sharp House. My space cadet ways once again were in full force and I already forgot her name, but we had a lovely chat about her job and how English Folk and Festivals are clearly on the rise in the UK. She stated that the Cecil Sharp House is really trying to make some new changes—-modernizing its facility and approach, but being a non-profit it’s tough without the proper funding. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? After I left, I kicked myself for not making a ten-pound donation. It was the least I could have done. Most of the collection consisted of older books and manuscripts, but I was quite surprised to see a number of recent publications about people like Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and even a book chronicling electric folk. I just wish I could have dug into the old sound recordings. Next time! If you’re in London I highly recommend you check out the Cecil Sharp House. It’s near Camden Town and the London Zoo. I got lost trying to find it, even with a detailed map Huw Pryce printed for me. Did I mention I was a space cadet? Check out some of the pictures I took today while visiting the Cecil Sharp House. Here’s some information about the man behind the house:

Cecil James Sharp (22 November 1859 – 23 June 1924) was the founding father of the folklore revival in England in the early twentieth century, and many of England's traditional dances and music owe their continuing existence to his work in recording and publishing them. Sharp taught and composed music, but became interested in traditional English dance when he saw a group of Morris dancers at the village of Headington Quarry, just outside Oxford, at Christmas 1899. At this time, Morris dancing was almost extinct, and the interest generated by Sharp's notations kept the tradition alive. The revival of the Morris dances started when Mary Neal, the organizer of the Esperance Girls' Club in London, used Sharp's (then unpublished) notations to teach the traditional dances to the club's members in 1905. Their enthusiasm for the dances persuaded Sharp to publish his notations in the form of his Morris Books, starting in 1907. Between 1911 and 1913 he published a three-volume work, The Sword Dances of Northern England, which described the obscure and near-extinct Rapper sword dance of Northumbria and Long Sword dance of Yorkshire. This led to the revival of both traditions in their home areas, and later elsewhere.

Sharp often published versions of the songs he collected, which included a part for piano that Sharp composed himself. It appears that the traditional singers (who always sang a cappella) found Sharp's piano parts to be just distracting noise. However, the piano versions did help Sharp in his goal of teaching English folk music to children in schools, thus "reacquainting" them, as he felt, with their national musical heritage.

The schools project perhaps also accounts for Sharp's practice of heavily bowdlerizing the lyrics, which, at least among the English songs, often emphasize sex and violence. Thus, there are often great differences between the songs as recorded in Sharp's field notes and what he published. An extreme case is the song The Keeper, whose original lyrics evidently celebrate rape. Sharp's revised lyrics turn it into a comic hunting song.

Sharp also helped instigate a period of nationalism in English classical music, the idea being to reinvigorate English composition by grounding it in its national folk music. Among the composers who took up this goal was Ralph Vaughan Williams, who carried out his own field work on folk song.
In 1911 Sharp founded the English Folk Dance Society which promoted the traditional dances through workshops held nationwide, and which later merged with the Folk Song Society in 1932 to form the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS). The current London headquarters of the EFDSS is named Cecil Sharp House in his honor.

During the years of the First World War, Sharp found it difficult to support himself through his customary efforts at lecturing and writing, and decided to make an extended visit to the United States. The visit, made with his collaborator Maud Karpeles during the years 1916–1918, was a great success. Large audiences came to hear Sharp lecture about folk music, and Sharp also took the opportunity to do field work on English folk songs that had survived in the more remote regions of the southern Appalachian Mountains, pursuing a line of research pioneered by Olive Dame Campbell. Traveling through the mountains of Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee, Sharp and Karpeles recorded a treasure trove of folk songs, many using the pentatonic scale and many in versions quite different from those Sharp had collected in rural England. Generally, Sharp recorded the tunes, while Karpeles was responsible for the words.

Sharp was greatly struck by the dignity, courtesy, and natural grace of the people who welcomed him and Karpeles in the Appalachians, and he defended their values and their way of life in print.
Sharp's work in promoting English folk song dance traditions in the USA is carried on by the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS).
