Pentangle

Pentangle were a British Folk band who first appeared on the scene 40 years ago. More "folk-jazz" than "folk-rock", their fans often cross into prog-rock territory (I am certain there is a ton of overlap with Renaissance fans) and the Fairport Convention/Steeleye Span crowd...

As with these other bands there are multiple incarnations of the group over the years and I really don't know enough about them yet to have a particular taste for any one era. There are countless compilations and collections of their material and the track offered up today appears on a disc that takes some standard album cuts and throws in a few rarities, thus focring die-hard fans to shell out a couple of more bucks to the few tracks they really want...

Would love to know what you think of the band...
