Pentangle


Pentangle, along with Fairport Convention, were one of the shining lights in the modernisation of British folk music in the 1960s.

The original line-up lasted until the early 70s, when a series of ins and outs resulted in erratic output, which continued through the 80s and 90s. The core of the band's identity was the eclectic virtuosity of Jansch and Renbourn, who added elements of Middle Eastern music, blues, jazz and Classical to their style. At various times, they also experimented with electric guitar and sitar. In the UK, probably best known for providing 'Light Flight' as the theme to the BBC drama series 'Take Three Girls'.
