A suitable birthday tribute then was made for my mum’s 55th birthday. A child of the 60s and avid fan of English folk my mum has followed the Fairport Convention since their conception in 1967. 16th May 2015 saw my mother’s live reunion with Fairport Conventions, along with her my sister experienced her first experience of live folk music. Cropredy Festival 1996 was my first formal introduction and since then I too have become a firm appreciator of folk. Fond memories are often had of the tents, fields and fair folk who may be found among the merrymaking that is Cropredy.
I hope to feature more folk and folk rock music as time goes on. Some notable folk bands and artists I enjoy are:
Diabolus – Witch & Warlock
Dibjack – northamptonshire folk
Early Fleetwood Mac (1967 – 1970)
King Crimson (early)
