The Pentangle_ the pentangle (1968) full album


I Pentangle sono un gruppo britannico che ha proposto una innovativa miscela di folk, jazz e blues. Il nome, che significa “pentagono”, indica i cinque membri della formazione originale che suona tra il 1968 e il 1972, contendendosi il titolo di più grande folk rock band inglese con i Fairport Convention. Come nel pentagono ogni lato è indispensabile, così ogni membro del gruppo apporta il suo fondamentale contribuito alla musica del gruppo. Inoltre il pentagramma è un simbolo mistico, che è rappresentato, tra l’altro, sullo scudo di Sir Gawain nel poema medievale Sir Gawain e il cavaliere verde, da cui Renbourn era affascinato.

Pentangle (or The Pentangle)[1] are a British folk-jazz band
with an eclectic mix of folk, jazz, blues and folk rock influences.
The original band were active in the late 1960s and early 1970s,
and a later version has been active since the early 1980s.
The original line-up, which was unchanged throughout the band’s
first incarnation (1967–1973), was: Jacqui McShee, vocals;
John Renbourn, vocals and guitar; Bert Jansch, vocals and guitar;
Danny Thompson, double bass; and Terry Cox, drums.

The name Pentangle was chosen to represent the five members of the band,
and is also the device on Sir Gawain’s shield in the Middle English poem Sir Gawain
and the Green Knight which held a fascination for Renbourn.

In 2007, the original members of the band were reunited
to receive a Lifetime Achievement award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards
and to record a short concert that was broadcast on BBC radio.
In June 2008, the band, comprising all five original members,
embarked on a twelve-date UK tour.
