14th Aug 2021




Fairport Convention, Richard Thompson, Trevor Horn Band, Clannad, Steve Hackett, Turin Brakes, Emily Barker


"We're really pleased with this year's line-up," says Fairport bassist Dave Pegg. "It consolidates Cropredy’s core appeal, celebrates Fairport’s rich heritage and also introduces a wide and diverse range of music. It'll be a particular pleasure to have Richard Thompson playing with us again during our three-hour headline set on the Saturday evening."

Cropredy will feature two sets by host band Fairport Convention. On Thursday 13 August they will open the festival with a short acoustic set. On Saturday they will close the event with their customary extended headline performance.

Fairport’s Saturday set will include a fiftieth anniversary celebration of Full House, the band’s acclaimed 1970 LP. The Full House line-up of Simon Nicol, Richard Thompson, Dave Mattacks, and Dave Pegg will be joined by Chris Leslie (standing in for the late Dave Swarbrick) to play the whole album.
