In Electric Folk - Revival and Transformation of English Traditional Music, Britta Sweers chronicles the history of the genre and explores its cultural implications.

She characterizes electric folk as both a result of the American folk revival of the early 1960s and a reaction against the dominance of American pop music abroad.

Sweers creates a detailed portrait of the folk rock scene - as cultural phenomenon, commercial entity, and performancestyle.
