Über Bert Jansch
An amazing guitarist, Bert Jansch was a key player in the nascent years of the British folk scene. A friend of and heavy influence on Donovan (see "Bert's Blues" or "House of Jansch"), as well as Neil Young and Jimmy Page, his recording career began with one microphone, a bedroom, and an acoustic guitar. His stark, finger-picking instrumentals found him an audience with fellow guitarist John Renbourn, an association which eventually led to their legendary work with Pentangle. His ability to mix classical and jazz guitar with American acoustic blues has made his early records a staple of virtually every up-and-coming guitarist.
