The Incredible String Band

The Incredible String Band was a late 1960’s/ early 70’s musical group often categorised as “psychedelic folk”, and dismissed as a peculiarity of the era of no great interest beyond that.

That is a pity, because the two key members of the group, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron, combined traditional British and World Music with their own words and musical styles to create some of the most poetic, emotive, and original songs written in the English language.

The first two examples below are taken from their 1971 album “The Liquid Acrobat, as Regards the Air”, and the last one from the 1968 album “The Hangman’s Beautiful  Daughter”.
