SORM Playlist #15-15: Tie Dyed Folk, Part 2
(airing the week starting 4-08-15)

Pschedelic Folk Podcast

In Pt. 2 of Tie Dyed Folk we turn our focus on the changing folk music scene in the UK. Like the music emanating from the US, influences from San Francisco and Los Angeles began to creep into British folk music. In contrast to the movement in the US, legend and mystery influenced this musical change spiced with exotic sounds from the East. Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band and performers like Anne Briggs and Donovan created an atmosphere of patchouli and flowers that flourished for a very short but magical time. This week we’ll hear some of the music that changed the face of folk music in the UK forever.
