This project is dedicated to British folk-rock's heyday: its reasons, significant features and impact on society. Precise attention is given to the representation of national character by music and the reasons why such representation was needed and was so popular. Answers on these research questions are important to observe the collocation between art's transformations and social changes. In this work will be used modernists theories of nationalism phenomena, in particular the Benedict Anderson's, Eric Hobsbawm's, Kaspar Hirschi's and Ernest Gellner's researches. The main aims are to define how the concept of national character is perceived and represented by music, the reasons why the British folk-rock was so popular in this certain period of time.
