📣 Eddie’s lockdown tune of the day

Today’s Lockdown Track. The Saw Doctors first appeared at Cambridge in ‘94 and were a huge success - you couldn’t stop yourself from having fun when they were on stage. The craic was always great off stage too, like the time they stayed up ‘til the early hours at a session, treating people to acoustic covers. I’m not sure how many times I heard Wonderwall that night, but it certainly sticks in my memory.

Yes it’s always an amazing atmosphere when the Saw Doctors perform at CFF😁

My all time favourite band, my brother got me into their music in about 1995 when Same Oul Town came out. Seen them live about 20 times, missed Bob Dylan in Finsbury Park to see their set at the Feis Festival in 2011.Saw them a few years back at the Cambridge Junction and they were as good as ever.

I miss the Saw Doctors. Seen them about 25 times.

Classic! Soundtrack of my teenage years!

A great band and an incredible vibe at the festival

Another great festival act, responded so well to the crowd ❤️

📣 Eddie’s lockdown tune of the day

Today’s Lockdown Track. If there is one song that reminds me most of Ken Woollard, it has to be From Clare to Here. Ralph played it at tribute concert to him at the Albert Hall and at the first Cambridge after he died, and it always draws a tear to my eye. Ralph, Ken and Joan (Ken’s wife), were very close. He first appeared at the Festival in ‘69, around the time of Streets of London and returned frequently. A young Ralph once complained to Ken that his success had made him busy and he was tired. An ex-fireman and motorcycle dispatch rider in the war, Ken’s unsympathetic reply was “My poor heart bleeds for you!”

Great story thanks! Really enjoyed Ralph’s performance last year. And at CFF2004. His last minute backstage performance last year was fabulous on the Thursday night before the Festival officially started...

I've loved him every time at CFF. No audience sings like Cambridge. Remember a couple of years ago Joan Baez chucked her set list so she could do just join-in songs?

Helen Louise - thought you’d enjoy x

📣 Eddie’s lockdown tune of the day

Today’s Lockdown Track. It’s genuinely hard picking a favourite Nanci Griffith song, but here’s a mine - possibly. Nanci played the festival many times, the first in ‘89 and when she got to I Wish it Would Rain, the heavens opened.

I remember the first year. She did the same set twice until someone shouted for her to change it around, for god's sake. I think there was one song of a difference.

Great album x

Nanci was my Number One at CFF2007😁
