Fairport's Cropredy Convention announces first acts for 2015

Trad Arrr, The Proclaimers, Dreadzone, Toyah Willcox and more conirmed

Fairport's Cropredy Convention have just announced today the first acts booked to appear at the 2015 festival. The three-day event, staged by folkrock band Fairport Convention, takes place annually near Banbury.

Fairport Convention will open the festival on Thursday 13 August with a short semi-acoustic set, followed by Trad Arrr, a brand new ensemble with a vigorous approach to traditional music. Led by PJ Wright, Trad Arrr will put the rock into folk-rock.

Dreadzone return to Cropredy with their unique, genre-busting mix of dub, reggae, and dance music. Norwegian female quartet Katzenjammer features soaring voices, great songs and an astonishing array of musical instruments.

Witty, often political, songs and sing-along raucousness make The Proclaimers a great festival act and they take the stage on Friday 14 August for their Cropredy debut. Since leaving Marillion, Fish has enjoyed a successful and innovative solo career which he will bring to Cropredy. Award-winning band Skerryvore are from Tiree in Scotland's Western Isles and their vibrant live set has been described as "the sound of young Scots power-folk."

On Saturday 15 August, Toyah Willcox will be another 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 to close the festival.

The rest of the line-up, including the Thursday and Friday headliners, will be announced in January 2015. Tickets for Fairport's Cropredy Convention will go on sale for a limited period in time for Christmas. 

Fairport's Cropredy Convention music festival takes place at Cropredy near Banbury, Oxfordshire, on Thursday 13, Friday 14 and Saturday 15 August 2015.
