Fairport Convention: Fairport And The Mysterious Lady

Tony Stewart, New Musical Express, 7 July 1973

"FOTHERINGPORT CONFUSION", states Trevor Lucas with a wry smile. That's his pet description of the present Fairport Convention. After all, the band comprises part of the old Fairport with the three Daves – Swarbrick, Pegg and Mattacks – plus two parts of the defunct Fotheringay, Lucas and Jerry Donahue.
