After their delightful kitchen cover sessions, Toyah and Robert Fripp recently reminded us of their professional musical prowess with a jaw-dropping performance at Fairport Convention’s annual Cropredy festival. The musical duo, known for their charming yet endearing covers, delivered an epic rendition of Led Zeppelin’s iconic track “Kashmir” that left the audience in awe.
But that’s not all – the cherry on top was having none other than Robert Plant himself in the audience, witnessing the musical magic
The setlist featured their signature twist on beloved classics, peppered with a trio of Toyah’s originals – “Thunder In The Mountains,” “It’s A Mystery,” and “I Want To Be Free.” However, it was the timeless hits that stole the show.

And then came the grand moment – a majestic version of Led Zeppelin’s masterpiece from “Physical Graffiti.”
