    Nice link of ‘rigs’ to machinery, especially since one of our other excellent words for “shady schemes” is ‘machinations’.

    I can confirm that Maddy Prior still is in Steeleye Span, because I saw them at Reading town hall a few days before this article was posted! I don’t think they played Rigs of the Time, but they still sound pretty good. (I also saw someone doing the shell game on the street in Geneva last year, so that’s alive and well too.)
