Roy Harper is something of an English music enigma, sure he could pick a mean guitar like his early ‘60s British folk contemporaries Bert Jansch, Davey Graham and Anne Briggs. However, a love of jazz, the beat poets, modern classical and earthy US blues and folk would always set him apart from it. Over the years he would prove to be an enduring influence on Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Pete Townshend, Kate Bush, Pink Floyd whilst more recently he’s found a new audience via modern US alternative folkies Joanna Newsome and Fleet Foxes.
