Film At 11: Judy Dyble And Andy Lewis

Founding Fairport Convention vocalist Judy Dyble has teamed with retro-minded DJ/producer and sometime member of Paul Weller’s band Andy Lewis for Summer Dancing (out August 18 on Acid Jazz), connecting the dots between late-’60s British folk sounds and the era’s baroque, pastoral and/or lysergic pop music.
