Thread Name: Origins: Peter Bellamy & Fairport Convention
Subject: Origins: Peter Bellamy & Fairport Convention
I have found and uploaded a rare recording of Peter Bellamy singing the Kipling poem "King Henry VII and The Shipwrights" with Fairport Convention in 1970. As it sounds, it seems to have been a quite spontaneous performance.
Since Bellamy rarely appeared with an electric backing, I guess it's at least an interesting bit of history.
The gig was at Little Hadham on August 22 1970. Was somebody of you there? or does somebody know if closer collaborations between Peter Bellamy and Fairport Convention were planned at that time?
