Quote: "The British folk revival of the 1950s and 60s was documented at its peak in BBC Radio's London Folk Song Cellar (1966-??). Recorded live in the basement of Cecil Sharp House (the HQ of the English Folk Dance and Song Society in London), this key series juxtaposed the mature work of the first generation revivalists (Martin Carthy, Shirley Collins) with that of younger performers such as Sandy Denny during an important period of transition."
