Folksangere 1967 - Martin, Dave, Bert, John at their VERY best

When world was a better place... much less TV, no computers and MUCH more time for music;-)))

In 1967, a Danish film crew went to London to document the folk music scene. Amongst the artists that were filmed and interviewed were Bert Jansch and John Renbourn before they formed Pentangle.

Impressive and cute and enchanting and illuminating listening at the shiny beauty of Martin Carthy (flatpicking!!!) and Dave Swarbrick's Gibson mandolin playing and those voices...

Bert in 1967

And a looong nice interview to Bert Jansch, shy and straight as an arrow also when younger... and rehearsing with John Renbourn.

A lovely YouTube find, as I only had some footage on an old VHS.

Thanks for posting, folks...
