Comment:

Not long after Bob Dylan upended the entire music world by plugging in at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, the revolution spread to the U.K. The singer-songwriter genre exploded, with the likes of Al Stewart, Donovan, and Martin Carthy leading the way, followed closely by folk-rock bands such as Fairport Convention, Pentangle, and Steeleye Span, who laid the groundwork for the modern generation of Brit folkies. And as you'll discover, much of the music they uncovered made its way into your favorite rockers' repertoires. We'll take you from godfathers Davy Graham and Ewan MacColl (Kirsty's dad) right up through modern faves Kate Rusby and Eliza Carthy (Martin's daughter). Electric and acoustic, rowdy and mellow, ancient and modern . . . we have stacks of tracks tailored to every taste and temperament.
