The Proclaimers will make their Cropredy debut next year at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention.

The popular music event takes place between August 13 and 15 and it was confirmed the Scottish band who will take to the stage on Friday, August 14.

Fairport Convention will open the festival with a small semi-acoustic set on Thursday, followed by Trad Arr, a brand new ensemble with a vigorous approach to traditional music. Led by PJ Wright, Trad Arr will put the rock into folk-rock.

Twenty six years since he left Marillion, Fish has enjoyed a successful and innovative solo career. His distinctive voice and powerful delivery promise a great live show at Cropredy when he plays on Friday.

On Saturday, Toyah Willcox will be another welcome newcomer to Cropredy when she performs with her band. Rory Gallagher’s former backing musicians Band of Friends will celebrate Rory’s life and music and will be joined on stage by ex-Fairport member Dan ArBras.

Fairport Convention return to the stage on Saturday evening to close the festival with their traditional headlining set.
