Fairport Convention Today

Unhalfbricking...Sort Of

Fairport Convention 1969

Fairport Convention, the greatest band of all time, the page decoration, based upon the greatest album of all time, Liege and Lief; the combination? an exquisite mix of The British Tradition and a band in their full confidence, a mix of the old with the new, witness the power of the combined writing powers of Richard Thompson and Dave Swarbrick on Farewell, Farewell and Crazy Man Michael. What we have here is not just another band that came out of the late sixties, but something incredibly unique, the birth of  truly British music, as Ashley Hutchings would describe it years later in a song, appropriately called Wings, we had finally grown "our home-made wings", and things would never be quite the same again.
