The distinctive sound of the Psychedelic Era was not just component of the rock music of the period. There was a good bit of Folk Music which was influenced by the times. That sound did not end with advent of the 1970s and lives on in many artists today. On the next two shows, we’ll look back to that magical period and to artists that carry that spirit on through to today. This week we'll hear some classic music from Bob Dylan, Jefferson Airplane and Paul Siebel among others. We’ll also hear some contemporary players like In Gowan Ring, Helen Dorothy and The Creaking Tree String Quartet. Getting your freak folk on … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.
