Bert Jansch’s ground-breaking guitar
playing, deeply affecting songwriting and dark, passionate voice have held
audiences spellbound since the mid-sixties. Famously admired by
Jimmy Page, Neil Young
and Nick Drake, more recently young
luminaries such as Noel Gallagher,
Jarvis Cocker, Bernard
Butler and Johnny Marr have paid homage to
this unassuming but intensely revered master.
a live setting, Bert’s performances are still a rare opportunity to see one of
the British music scene’s true legends play. His understated, low key approach
eschews hollow show business routines, and the audience is treated to a guitar
playing master class and an impressive catalogue of some of the most emotive and
haunting songs in the British canon.
- “Jansch’s influence on modern music is incalculable”
- “One of the most influential musicians of all time”
Neil Young -
much of a great guitar player as Jimi [Hendrix] was, Bert Jansch is the same
thing for acoustic guitar…and my favourite.”
- “He completely re-invented guitar playing and set a standard that is
still unequalled today”
Jimmy Page - “I
was absolutely obsessed with Bert Jansch. When I first heard that LP , I
couldn’t believe it. It was so far ahead of what everyone else was doing. No one
in America could touch that.”
