Biography

Active: 1960s
Country Of origin: England
Group Members: Sally Oldfield , Mike Oldfield

The Sallyangie, the British folk duo of Sally Oldfield and her brother Michael, were signed upon the recommendation of guitarist John Renbourn of Pentangle. Sally was 21 years old, and Michael a mere 16, at the time of their late-'60s album Children of the Sun. Not surprisingly, the result was crystalline and gentle contemporary British folk with similarities to Pentangle, but considerably more low-key. The Oldfields collaborated on the writing of all of the material on their sole outing. Mike Oldfield went on to join Kevin Ayers' band and achieve stardom as a progressive rock guitarist and composer with Tubular Bells, while Sally recorded less successful but equally ambitious art rock albums as a solo act. ~ Richie Unterberger~ Rovi
