A Fairport History



This product is included in: Fairport unConventional
Fairport play folk music. Not exclusively so, but in large portion of their repertoire. Many folksongs deal with the past, and from clues in its setting, language and from the props in the song, we can guess as to roughly when that version is set.
But some songs can be located far more precisely than that. A FAIRPORT HISTORY features sixteen Fairport songs, arranged chronologically, that take us to exact dates, and make up an illustrated guide to key moments in the story of this sceptr’d isle. An unConventioNal history lesson. A kind of Fairport Curriculum. 79 minutes
