(Vocal/instrumental group, 1967–73)

Formed by acoustic guitar virtuosos John Renbourn and Bert Jansch, it also included Jacqui McShee (vocals), Danny Thompson (bass) and Terry Cox (drums). Described by one critic as ‘the missing link between folk, jazz, blues and pop’, Pentangle were considered the most sophisticated outfit within the commercial folk movement after they crept into the UK singles Top 50 with 1969’s ‘Once I Had A Sweetheart’, and completed the first of several successful tours of North America.
