In July 1970 Fairport Convention found themselves playing alongside Matthews Southern Comfort at the Maidstone Fiesta concert. This captured on film by the renowned British film director Tony Palmer. This concert performance captures the Fairprot Convention's full line up at their height. The band performs the song Sir Patrick Spens alongside various jigs and reels, and also the song Now Be Thankful which had been released as a single at the time. Matthews Southern Comfort is also featured performing two songs. At this point in their career they were just a few months away from a number one single with a cover of Joni Mitchell's Woodstock. Alongside Ian Matthews the band featured Carl Barnwell, Gordon Huntley, Ray Duffy, Mark Griffiths and Andy Leigh. Songs performed by Matthews Southern Comfort are; My Front Pages and Southern Comfort. This performance has never been released on CD and as such will appeal to the large and dedicated following that both Fairport Convention and Ian Matthews enjoy.
