Formed in 1967, Fairport Convention can be considered as the end of the British Folk-Rock bands. They did not care too much about the real rock influences, as they resisted the various temptations so popular in the 1960s. They are proud of their pastoral roots and preferred to focus a lot on English folk songs and various original contributions. Another part of their musical work is represented by various popular cover songs, where innovation and traditional sounds are melted. Their musical birth took place when Byrds and Mamas and the Papas were a very big sensation in the world of music, but tried as much as possible to keep their own style and sources of inspiration. During years, they operated a couple of changes in the composition of the group, as it happened in 1968, when the voice of Sandy Denny (ex-Strawbs) replaced Judy Dyble, in 1968. She passed away ten years after, but her contribution to the group is considered as part of their golden era history.Formed in 1967, Fairport Convention can be considered as the end of the British Folk-Rock bands.
