Fotheringay

As I saw that the Fotheringay's album has re-appeared on the 8 Days In April blog, and it has been mentioned also on hansZUNblog, I thought it was the right time to post this beautiful video. Fotheringay has been a sort of super-group of the British folk-rock scene, formed by the vocalist Sandy Denny after she left The Fairport Convention, with his boy-friend Trevor Lucas, on guitar and lead vocal, and the drummer Jerry Convay (both ex-Eclection), the guitarist Jerry Donahue (ex-Tumbleweed) and Pat Donaldson (ex-Country Fever) on bass. The band lasted for just one short season in 1970 and left us the self-titled album, a little gem of electric folk. As you can hear in this song perfomed live for the good old Beat Club their music had also some reminiscences of American country and west-coast music.

Fotheringay - Too Much Of Nothing (1970)

Many many thanks ! I've got the Fotheringay CD, but I never get the chance to see the band play.

Thanks for this very nice video!
For me it also was the first time I saw them play and even the first time I saw Sandy Denny perform!!
And what a relieve the camerawork is done carefully, instead of moving all the time (trying to look hip...)
Cheers.

Thanks, great to see Sandy, Shame the cameraman chose to obscure her face for most of the song by filming in front the bass players guitar.
