Pentangle have confirmed that they will reform to play a one-off anniversary gig at London’s Royal Festival Hall next June.
The original band comprising Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox are reuniting for their Sweet Child double album’s 40th anniversary.
The band has been enjoying somewhat of a resurgence since the release of a definitive four CD box set ‘The Time Has Come‘ in March this year.
You can read Uncut’s extensive four-star rated review of the box set here.
Pentangle also recieved a lifetime achievement award at the BBC Folk Awards this year.
The one-off concert is to take place on June 29, 2008, exactly 40 years since Sweet Child’s release.
