GUEST,CJB Cambridge Folk Festival 1974/5 (19) Cambridge Folk Festival 1974/5 02 Feb 18

American singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie performs 'Deportees' to a large crowd, whilst others meet, share food and play music in the tent field. Performances from British folk artists Rosemary Hardman, and Pigsty Hill Light Orchestra is followed by a trio of songs by Loudon Wainwright III; 'Liza', 'Muse Blues' and 'Unrequited to the Nth Degree'. The following morning, early risers wander through the litter-strewn fields, as sleeping campers wake, rubbish is collected and the crowds begin to form for another day of live music. George Deacon and Marion Ross perform a traditional English ballad, whilst Scottish quartet Boys of the Lough continue their celtic revival. Crowds drink and enjoy the festival atmosphere as Breton musician Alan Stivell performs a traditional song with his harp, before his full band closes the festival with a raucous set combining traditional celtic music with modern rock instrumentation.
