Well, in this case, it meanders through 50 years of folk rock history, taking in the spectacular scenery along one of the most attractive rivers in Europe, on an exclusive cruise hosted by none other than Fairport Convention. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy ‘up close and personal’ the many and varied talents of Simon, Peggy, Gerry, Chris and Ric, and they are as excited as we are about the 5 evenings of on board entertainment being planned.
There will be songs old and new from the Fairports of course, but so much more as well aboard the newest addition to the Amadeus Fleet ~ The MS Amadeus Imperial. Your luxurious floating home from home. With only 150 guests on board, you really don’t want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity….
Experience the Amadeus difference…. A family run company with a focus on ‘re-inventing river cruising’
Enjoy an unforgettable Music filled 7 night cruise from Amsterdam to Basel. How about a Beatles singalong, or even getting up to do a Beatles karaoke with the Fairports as your backing band? Wouldn’t that be a video to impress friends and embarrass the grand children!
Peggy is threatening to tell a few tales which couldn’t be included in his recent book ‘Off the Pegg’, and Gerry might teach you how to play the cajon, whilst Ric and Chris are planning solo and duo sets. And…. who could have expected this …. a couple of band members would like to demonstrate their abilities in performing magic tricks and stand-up comedy!
