The Watersons

Oh man, what a cool audiovisual artifact this is! I'm not sure what I love more - the faithful, heartfelt rendition of this traditional British folk song, "Hal-An-Tow," or this 1965 BBC documentary's beautiful, black and white grittiness. Hands down, The Watersons are without a doubt my favorite obscure British folk group from the early sixties that I heard for the first time in 2007.
