ShadowThe 5 O’clock Shadow: Friday, June 10, 2022

The original band was a quartet from England. Your mother should know they sold quite a few records on Penny Lane.

The shadow band is still going after more than 50 years. They aren’t in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but they should be, as they were influential in exploring British Isles traditional music and bringing it to new audiences in a rock format. Their annual festival in Oxfordshire attracts up to 20,000 people to hear former members of the band reunite with the current lineup.

Bonus points for identifying the Breton singer/guitarist on the shadow song who was in the shadow band briefly in the 1970s.

The song title refers to a weather event.
