The Coral and more for Cropredy Convention

Variety the key at Fairport's Cropredy Convention 2011

Fairport Convention today announces the line-up for its annual music festival, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention. The festival also announces that tickets will go on sale on Tuesday 1 March.
Billed as 'Britain's Friendliest Festival', the three-day event will take place on Thursday 11, Friday 12 and Saturday 13 August 2011. The festival will be held at its usual site on farmland north of Banbury, Oxfordshire, three miles from Junction 11 of the M40 motorway.
Headliners include reggae legends UB40, guitar-pop band The Coral, bluesman Seasick Steve, acclaimed singer-songwriter Badly Drawn Boy, Blockheads (best known as Ian Dury's band), America's Hayseed Dixie and, as special guests, Irish rockers Horslips.
Cropredy will also present the winner of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. This year the lucky youngsters are a trio named Moore, Moss, Rutter.
As usual, the festival has a strong contingent of folk music acts including award-winning Lau, The Urban Folk Quartet, and recently-reformed folk legends Home Service.
"We always strive to bring variety to Cropredy," says Simon Nicol, Fairport's lead singer and festival co-organiser. "This year is no exception and we've got everything from pop, rock and reggae to folk and bluegrass with some surprises thrown in. The line-up this year caters to a very diverse range of tastes with something for every age group  that, of course, reflects the all-generations audience who come to our festival."
Last year, a programme of musical highlights from Fairport's Cropredy Convention was broadcast on Sky Arts 1 HD television channel. Sky Arts 1 is expected to record the festival again in 2011 with transmission pencilled in for later in the year.
