A last-minute addition to the bill after Linda Thompson had to pull out due to health problems. Fairport were actually rehearsing for their own Cropredy Festival the following week, when Dave Pegg took a phone call asking if he knew anyone who could fill in at such short notice (about 48 hours). He said Fairport would gladly play... then went and told the rest of the band. It was a storming set, and the first time Fairport had ever played Cambridge as Fairport - though all the members had been several times over the years.
