The Strangelings at Folk Fest

The Strangelings took the Lobby Stage this afternoon to a packed and wildly appreciative crowd.
For those of us who were a little too young to catch the great folk rock bands like Fairport Convention and It's a Beautiful Day in their heyday, the Strangelings provide the next best thing. Their first record is called Season of the Witch, after a Donovan song, which they covered with heaps of atmosphere and a serious backbeat.
They come complete with three great female vocalists, an electric sitar and a skinny violin player in mirror shades.
