A Film By Adele Schmidt And Jose Zagerra Holder

The third film in the series guides you through the amazing history and development of the Canterbury Scene and its influence on contemporary bands. The emergence of the Canterbury Scene of the late 60s and early 70s represents a remarkable period in the history of British progressive rock music and, most notably, the development of Jazz Rock.
