Bright Phoebus Revisited
Eliza Carthy
Folk music is littered with so-called lost classics, but 'Bright Phoebus' by Lal and Mike Waterson really is just that. Released in 1972, it's an album of seminal, sporadically sun-dappled and sometimes surreal English folk-rock by two members of the great Waterson clan, that's been dubbed the 'Sgt Pepper's…' of the genre – yet it's been out of print for years. In a format that's seen the Barbican pay similar tribute to the likes of Sandy Denny and Nick Drake in recent years, the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Richard Hawley and Eliza and Martin Carthy join forces with some illustrious Waterson relatives to explore the musical legacy of the two late, lamented singers. The concert coincides with the publication of 'Team Me to Be a Summer's Morning', which features the writings and artwork of Lal Waterson.
