Summary In the late 1960s, with popular culture hurtling forward on the sounds of rock music, some brave musicians looked back instead, trying to recover the lost treasures of English roots music and update them for the new age. Young shows, through enchanting storytelling and brilliant commentary, that this revival in England inspired the Beatles and Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Traffic, Kate Bush and Talk Talk.
Subject Folk music -- Great Britain -- History and criticism.
