RockBoar.com Picture   The Canterbury scene (or Canterbury sound) is a term used to loosely describe the group of progressive rockavant - garde and jazz musicians, many of whom were based around the city of Canterbury, Kent, England during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    The Canterbury scene is largely defined by a set of musicians and bands with intertwined memberships. These are not tied by very strong musical similarities, but a certain whimsicality, touches of psychedelia, rather abstruse lyrics, and a use of improvisation derived from jazz are common elements in their work. “The real essence of 'Canterbury Sound' is the tension between complicated harmonies, extended improvisations, and the sincere desire to write catchy pop songs.” “In the very best Canterbury music...the musically silly and the musically serious are juxtaposed in an amusing and endearing way.
