And before that – Fairport Convention’s Cropredy Festival ( Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th August 2019 ).. with a newly announced special guest…
In the studio..Jon Buxton will be telling us all about the music of Heronimus Fin.. “Record Collector Magazines readers vote the band consistently in their top 500 collectable artists 6 years running (even toppling Syd Barrett, The Stereophonics, Cream, The Eagles, The White Stripes, Foo Fighters, Robert Plant, Joe Satriani, Can, Roger Waters) and John Vignola write in Italy’s alternative rock magazine Rockerilla “the capacity of the band to mix the tone and alternate the acoustics in a contagious electric riff, produces compositions filled with yearning and melancholy with total originality ….. our rational attempt stops here at the evident beauty of the sound” …
