Hosted by musician, poet, sculptor and all-round polymath Rory McEwen, Hullabaloo was a key part of the early '60s folk music boom, with guests recorded live in front of an invited audience at ABC's Teddington Lock studios.
Featuring home-grown talent in the shape of Martin Carthy, The Clancy Brothers, Isla Cameron, Tommy Makem, The Spinners, Long John Baldry, Davey Graham, The Ian Campbell Folk Group, Bob Davenport and Rory's brother Alex, the series also showcased early British appearances from Carolyn Hester, Bill Clifton, Peter, Paul & Mary, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Sonny Boy Williamson and Esther & Abi Ofarim.
Unseen for over fifty years, all thirteen shows have been transferred from film materials especially for this release.
