Songs From the Wood

The late sixties was a magical time for music. People played with it. Created with it. And influenced with it. The so-called jazz-folk band known by their five point name, Pentangle, was one of those musical collectives that influenced many. Some made a lot of money producing popular music influenced by folks such as these.

Imagine living together with your bandmates in St John’s Wood, where your sole purpose in life was to make music. Sadly, we have recently lost two members, both guitarists.

Sit back and listen to John Renbourn’s The Black Balloon….fine guitar picking.
