What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

Folk rock veterans Fairport Convention to play Grand Opera House in York next March

Fairport Convnetion

FOLK rock luminaries Fairport Convention are to play the Grand Opera House, York, on March 1 next year.

Each year starts with Fairport covering the length and breadth of Britain on their winter tour, followed by a more relaxed spring tour, and then attention turns to the band's annual staging of the Cropredy Convention festival in Oxfordshire in August.

Each December, the band's time is occupied by side-projects and their respective Christmas tours. Lead singer and guitarist Simon Nicol tours with The Albion Christmas Band; bass guitarist Dave Pegg with both The Dylan Project and Peggy & Anthony John Clarke; violinist Ric Sanders with the Ric Sanders Trio; vocalist and fiddler Chris Leslie with St Agnes Fountain and percussionist Gerry Conway with both Fotheringay and The Dylan Project.
