He's EVERYWHERE this summer :thumbup:
yes very tempting. I wonder what other gigs will happen?
Roy is now doing a Q&A on the Mojo stage at Cambridge.
Snipped from today. Not sure if this will be available worldwide?
http://video.sky.com/skyarts/related/49056/1/Roy Harper - Cambridge Folk Festival/true
Been watching 4 songs of his set on Sky Arts 1 - this is terrible that I can't remember them all :blushing: but they definitely showed I Hate the White Man and Commune :biggrin: And he did a brief interview with Mark Radcliffe, who was ridiculously excited to be interviewing and introducing him...
I now know that Zoe Ball's Mum is a big fan of Roy, thanks SKY.
Should sack the sound mixer for that cock-up.
Despite the initial sound cock-up, I was very impressed with how much airtime The Mastwr was given, and even more impressed (but not surprised) by how very good he sounded.
Despite the Murdoch connection, I think Sky Arts have done far better than the Beeb ever did with the festival.
I see Sky have put up a photo of Roy from the show.
His Royness Speaks
Any other personal reviews on this from people who attended? What form/ ambient mood is our steadfast one in?
Andi it's all surrounding
Here's one from a blog:
8. Roy Harper obviously relishes his status as a legendary anti-establishment figure, although he now looks less like a rebel and more like Richard Harris’s Dumbledore. His solo set was defiantly uncommercial and peppered with slightly self-regarding anecdotes about his forward-looking unconventionality, but his voice and guitar playing are still powerful enough to redeem him. And some of his songs are just gorgeous: he played the achingly poignant Another Day and ended with the moving When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease, the song that John Peel used to joke he wanted played at his funeral*.
Why what happened ?
On the TV broadcast (at least on satellite - Radcliffe did say it was only some viewers who heard it), they started the video (with audio) and played audio to another song over it for about a minute - bloody annoying :angry:
Roy on Radio 2 NOW !!
part of Mike Hardings show from Cambridge Folk Festival - currently in interview, I'm sure there will be a link on BBC iPlayer somewhere !?
available for a week from yesterday : http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01l7s6n/The_Cambridge_Folk_Festival_01_08_2012/
Here are some of my pictures from the festival

Plus Moseley :
Crikes ... I thought I was lazy ... but the guy who filmed that (Ed) says he's been following Roy for 40 years ... but yet couldn't be arsed to stand up and watch/film him ?!?
Moseley was a bit like that, Paul & I got asked twice to move, because folk sitting down couldn't see !? Also as they had two stages, people expected to be able to sit down and see both stages ?!!?
