It was an interesting time----1965-1966, the Folk Rock era.

It's the only time when true poetry became Top-Ten Billboard Hot 100 hits.

Steeleye Span was the first gig I ever went to. I saw them a few times. Obviously Fairport Convention were superb... never saw them live but I've seen Richard Thompson twice.
Also the Albion Band and I've probably forgotten a few others.
My absolute faves were Irish band Horslips... they had a strong traditional element... I had "the Tain" on vinyl and played it so often I nearly wore it out... eventually saw them live... a great night.

On a more folkie/less rocky note... Alan Stivell (breton harpist) and Kathryn Tickell (Northumbrian pipes)

... and how could I forget Planxty and Christie Moore... more records nearly worn out... obviously I like Irish stuff. Dubliners, Boys of the Lough.

Very nice. Hadn't heard of Zoe Wren before.

A bit more Pentangle from 1972.



And a very recent political song from Grace Petrie. The lyrics are best appreciated if you are familiar with the UK political situation of the last few years - or not - depending on your politics.
