Culture Break: Fairport Convention: "Portmeiron"

This is a lovely tune that just happened to come up on the player a few minutes ago, and I realized I hadn't done a "Culture Break" post in a while:


By way of background, Fairport Convention is one of those English folk-folk/rock groups that has generated a lot of enthusiasm (trans.: "coverage") at Green Man Review over the years. I just finished editing a major overview of their career which will appear ??? (someday), and realized that I had none of their music on hand, which irony I related to our publisher. I know have access to lots of their music.

Oh, and in case you didn't know, Cropredy is essentially Fairport's own music festival.
