All Music Guide - Chris Nickson

From there it's actually just a short jump to the modern day, where electric and acoustic traditions continue freely, be it Dr. Faustus or the Eliza Carthy Band playing mostly without amplification, or the new electric generation of the wonderfully named Whapweasel.
