Brand new artist named Jay Jay Pistolet jumps into the UK Folk Circle

Jay Jay Pistolet - Bags Of Gold

Laura Marling, Mumford and Sons, and Johnny Flynn have paved the way for a new direction for U.K. folk music. Many have hopped on board and already following suit. One of the many young stars to lead by example is Jay Jay Pistolet, a.k.a Justin Hayward-Young. The 21 year old comes from Hampshire England and is producing some tracks from the front man of Noah and the Whale, Charlie Fink.  Good news Jay will be at SXSW, hopefully with a full band.

Really, really like this song, this guy fits in with the rest of the new folk group.

Hard to pin down the year the color film was shot used in this video, my guess is that these are English tourists somewhere around 1960 to 1962.
