ESA FEATURED IN UK FEST DOC THIS SATURDAY
Official release: Digital subscriber channel Sky Arts 1HD is to broadcast a 90 minute music documentary filmed at Fairport's Cropredy Convention 2010. The programme forms part of the Sky Arts 'Centre Stage: Summer Festivals' series which airs this autumn.
The Cropredy programme's UK premiere will be transmitted on Saturday 18 September at 9pm. Sky TV subscribers will find Sky Arts 1HD on channel 256 and the broadcast will also be available on Virgin Media and on Tiscali TV.
The Cropredy special will be presented by well-loved broadcaster Bob Harris who opened the festival and introduced several of the acts. The programme was also produced for Sky Arts 1HD by WBBC, Bob and Trudie Harris's broadcasting company.
Bob is no stranger to Cropredy; he and his family have been regular visitors for many years. "Cropredy is really special," he says, "and it is a real privilege to be able to bring this year's festival to Sky Arts 1HD. As always, I was blown away by the variety and quality of the performances at Cropredy. But, as the programme will show, it's more than just the music - Cropredy has a wonderfully friendly atmosphere."
The broadcast will include performances by Fairport Convention (including a selection from the band's stunning 'Excalibur' set featuring Johny Logan and Jacqui McShee), Status Quo, Little Feat, Thea Gilmore, the Dixie Bee Liners, Easy Star All Stars and surprise stars of the festival ahab, a London-based five-piece alt-country band.
