Guitarist Gordon Giltrap, a Patron of Square Roots Productions, recalls the London folk scene in the 1960s.

I feel very proud and privileged to have been a part of the growing London folk scene in the mid-sixties. To have had a residency at the now legendary Les Cousins  was for me a dream come true as a 19-year-old aspiring then singer-songwriter, and to rub shoulders with legendary names such as John Martyn, Wizz Jones, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jackson C Frank, Ralph McTell, Al Stewart, Paul Simon and many more are memories I shall cherish for ever.

The idea of celebrating that golden age of creativity I think is a wonderful idea, and with the Bringing It All Back Home project growing daily I sincerely hope that when it comes to fruition I am able to be a part of it, here in London and hopefully at Washington Square New York.
