Thanks, we usually do - and this year looks set to be the first one in a long time for which we shan't need waterproof clothing!

I did, I think, explain the need for a temporary boaters' car5 park three or four posts ago.


yes you did, I think, explain clearly the general need to take both a car and a boat to the festival. 

But it’s still quiet odd that boaters require their own car park. 

 

Ain’t there a general make shift car park for the weekend that boaters can use?

The official car parks don't open till Thursday morning.

How well did/do you get on with Gregg? ‘Tongue in cheek comment’, I’m sure he’d be happy to charge you a nominal fee to park the car and a fare to transport to Croppers.

So boaters who either can't take the time off to boat there or just live too far away should be banned form attending.  What a nice inclusive idea.  They may as seem the case in Athy's situation have boat don there in the area but live a distance away and so need to come by car.

What a daft thing to say , I’d never suggest anyone should be banned from attending. 
I’m all for inclusivity. 
 

Don’t like exclusivism.

No I haven't, and thank you again for the suggestions.

 

But my point is that there is doubtless an official parking place for boaters, arranged and sanctioned by the festival organisers. It's just that they appear to be keeping it a secret, which doesn't help people very much.

 

 

Why don't you just go to the festival on ya boat? Park up by the bridge on the Claydon flight, then cruise back to yer mooring!

Athy you have pm

 

Once the festival is going, we've parked in the big field across the next bridge down from the main festival site, between fields 7a and 7d.

Might see you there. For the first time we're going by campervan, having always gone by boat in previous years.

Who?

No, I don't think they have ever played at Cropredy. I wouldn't mind seeing them, though.

I just looked at the lineup.

 

It will definitely rain because Richard Thompson is on!

That's why it rains three years out of four, then - he usually turns up either as an advertised participant or a surprise guest.

And what is wrong with being 73 and one of the worlds best guitarists?  Or having the OBE?

Nowt at all!

 

Just the first two easy facts I picked. 
 

I will look him up and have a listen later this evening.

Watched good interviews last night with Sir Mick Jagger 79 and Keith Richard’s 78. 

to add: just looked on iplayer and There’s also a Ronnie Wood Interview and a reflection on the life of Charlie Watts too. 
 

Worth looking up if you haven’t seen them. Each an hour long.

You will like him.  Just keep in mind as you are listening that its one man, one guitar. Some of his compositions are a bit morose but clever.

Some say he has 6 fingers on his right hand.......

I like clever morose. 

Someone once put me on to Pentangle. But I couldn’t get in to them, did me head in. 
But when I listened to the musicians individually I thought they were brilliant. And discovered John Redburn  

and Bert Jansch. 
Same with Fairport Convention can’t listen to them as a group. But pick apart the musicians and they’re fantastic. Especially the voice of Sandy Denny. 
 

Stick them all together and I can’t listen. 
I must have come across Richard Thompson, I’ll have listen.

Started watching the Ronnie Wood interview last night, it’s good.

It has a few shots of his parents and boats as he talks about his upbringing.
