Friday Folk Flashback

“The False Knight on the Road” – Fleet Foxes

I love it when indie-folk bands show their “folk cred” by releasing versions of traditional songs. Many Fleet Foxes fans don’t even realise that “The False Knight on the Road” is a traditional (from the Child Ballads) as it fits so well with their original material. Such a great version of this song – very reminiscent of the Tim Hart and Maddy Prior version.
