Fairport are very good like the ABB still going with a much revised line up.

Particulary good albums:

what we did on our holidays
liege and leif
Unhalfbricking.

Honorary mention to the first album which if you like west coast pop/ Hourglass may be up your street.

Not so keep on the Span though.


recent Folk revival band of merit is Circulus, they seem to take not being very serious, seriously.

Always have been a fan of The Fairports. Sandy Denny was to me perhaps THE greatest white female singer, her voice was magical.
Richard Thompson remains a great talent also and has a new album out, his first with a full band in quite a while
Also I was lucky enough to catch Fairport Convention a couple of months ago in Edinburgh and they played a long and impressive set, as has been said the line up is much changed with only Simon Nicol and Dave Pegg ( also of Jethro Tull ) remaining from the early days but the latecomers are all fine musicians.

Love Sandy Denny and there is some great stuff by June Tabor too.

The Best of Sandy Denny (Island) and June Tabor Anthology (Music Club) are ridiculously good value at £5.99 or less. Both of the Sandy Denny box-sets are brilliant too.

I love Fire and Sleet and Candlelight by Coope Boyes and Simpson, and their work with Blue Murder is fun.

Some of ther young folkies are interesting - Tim van Eyken, Seth Lakeman, Eliza Carthy etc. Johnny Dickinson is a great live act - he plays excellent acoustic slide guitar on traditional Northumbrian ballads and blues. Strange mixture, and that's probably what holds him back.

Steeleye Span .

I like Fairport just fine but I got into Steeleye Span long before I heard the name Richard Thompson....or Sandy Denny.

Maddy Prior has an absolutely incredible singing voice......

I've just listened to The Albion Band's 1977 album "Rise Up Like the Sun". Great stuff, and includes a version of Afro Blue!

Teddy Thompson, "Late Show With David Letterman." With a string tie and an intense glare, Richard and Linda's son sounded delightfully retro country on "Change of Heart," an Everly Brothers fave. Loved the string section, upright bass and pedal steel guitar in his drummer-less band.

Big devotee of this genre. The all time king was Bert Jansch. Barely a whisper on this site when he died a few years ago, and no response here when Shavian posted a note re John Renbourn's recent passing.

If you want to really dive into the deep end of British folk/rock, read this book:

Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain's Visionary Music, by Rob Young.



Learned a lot about British music, and the country too from this book, and ended up befriending...Shirley..Collins, while tracking down the many obscure references to to British Folk. Really amazing book. Talks about lots of bands and people you never heard of.


Here is Rob Young's website:

Good to see this thread being bumped!

I've been reading Mick Houghton's excellent new biog of Sandy Denny and listening to her early work with The Strawbs and Fairports. It's interesting to read that the Fairports were originally promoted as the UK's answer to Jefferson Airplane!

Coope, Boyes & Simpson's last album As If was superb as was June Tabor & Oysterband's Ragged Kingdom. I was lucky enough see them four times when they were together and each was terrific. To square the circle, they do a great version of White Rabbit!

There is a thriving folk club scene and some terrific, if largely ignored, young talent around. I saw Bella Hardy last night and her new album With The Dawn sounds very contemporary and good.

Audiences are generally small and definitely the older age group. Young people are pretty oblivious to folk music which is sad when you hear some of the crap they listen to in dance clubs.

Yet festivals such as Cambridge attract a full range of ages from the very young to the very old - the interest just doesn't seem to extend beyond festivals.

"Fotheringay are returning bright eyed and bushy tailed for a spectacular string of live dates that follow the release of their latest album, the 4 CD set, ‘Nothing More: The Collected Fotheringay’ (Universal) and the release of the Sandy Denny book ‘I’ve Always Kept A Unicorn’ by Mick Houghton. Both the boxed set and book have been receiving unanimously rave reviews.

The line-up of Fotheringay ‘15 is: original founding members Jerry Donahue on guitar, Gerry Conway on drums, Pat Donaldson on bass with very special guests PJ Wright filling the late Trevor Lucas’ shoes and Kathryn Roberts and Sally Barker respectfully filling the shoes of the late Sandy Denny

A wee bit of history for those who don’t know: Fotheringay was formed in 1970 by Sandy Denny on her departure from Fairport Convention.

Trevor Lucas, Sandy’s husband to be, together with Gerry Conway, Jerry Donahue and Pat Donaldson made up the band, which sadly, after only twelve months disbanded, during sessions for a projected second album. Finally completed decades later with care and love by the remaining members of the band, ‘Fotheringay 2’ is included in the new boxed set.

Guitarist PJ Wright will be known to many through his work with Little Johnny England and the Dylan Project. Whilst it is impossible to replace Sandy, the three original Fotheringay members have invited in Kathryn Roberts (who along with her regular partner Sean Lakeman were winners in the Best Duo category at the BBC Folk Awards) and Sally Barker, former Poozie and regular Show of Hands guest and finalist in the 2014 BBC programme, ‘The Voice’.

Forty odd years on, the surviving members (Donahue, who has gone on to work with amongst others Joan Armatrading, Chris Rea, The Proclaimers, Nancy Griffith and The Beach Boys), Conway, now Fairport’s mainstay drummer and also, famously long time Cat Stevens band member and Donaldson, (Kate and Anna McGarrigle) are to reunite with some very special friends to perform a handful of live concerts and festivals to help promote the release of the limited edition Fotheringay boxed set.

Come back to your folk roots and let the Fotheringay’s demonstrate why the truly special music they created is still so truly loved. Or, dive in and discover for the first time, real magic."
