About this book
Trade paperback. The history of British folk clubs, brought to Faber by Editor-at-Large, Pulp singer and songwriter Jarvis Cocker. Explores the acoustic revolution which took place in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s.
In smoky rooms above pubs, bare rooms with battered stools and beer-stained tables, an acoustic revolution took place in Britain in the 1950s and '60s. This was the folk revival, where a generation of musicians, would rediscover the native songs of their own tradition. This book tells the story of this movement.
