My First Convention

The first festival I ever attended was Fairport Convention; I was 14 years old and with my first love. Having been introduced to the band by his Mum we travelled to Cropredy Oxfordshire and sang along with 'Meet on the Ledge', 'Who knows Where The Time Goes' and 'Farewell Farewell'.

I still have the original vinyl in my collection and Matty Groves was always my favourite, beautiful story telling and the biggest and maddest jam completes the whole second half of the song.

I was sorry to never have the opportunity to see Sandy Denny singing, but I did bump into Robert Plant there a couple of years later and got to see him sing Led Zep... So I guess I didn't do too bad really.
