The legendary Jacqui McShee and her band Pentangle play at Rhosygwilen on 17 November.

The modern incarnation of this classic band will be backing McShee onsongs old and new.

Pentangle helped forged a whole new era in folk. The original band played such stellar gigs as the Isle of Wight festivals (1969 and 1970), Newport Folk Festival, Fillmore East and West, Carnegie Hall and the Royal Festival Hall.

Going way beyond traditional folk, they created a new music rooted in jazz, folk and blues, and were billed alongside greats such as Miles Davis, Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Dylan and The Band.

Founder member McShee is the central link, right back to the first days of the original band. Subsequent line-ups have always featured her unmistakeable voice and approach, with the best contemporary players interpreting the songs and music in ever more diverse ways.
