IF YOU go back as far as the 60s or 70s, you'll probably remember the original Pentangle.

They had two superb guitarists in John Renbourn and Bert Jansch, and lead singer Jacqui McShee had one of the purest voices you're likely to hear in folk and rock.

One of their best-known songs was Light Flight, which was the theme music for the BBC's 1969 drama Take Three Girls.

Pentangle also had strong jazz elements in their work, and their overall sound remains intact with the latest form of the band, Jacqui McShee's Pentangle.

They play The Junction in a few weeks, and, in addition to newer material, are likely to include some new versions of old Pentangle favourites.

As well as McShee, the band consists of Spencer Cozens (keyboards), Gerry Conway (drums), Jerry Underwood (saxophones), and Alan Thomson (bass and guitar).
