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.

In 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.

 TIME OUT - “Jansch’s influence on modern music is incalculable”
THE GUARDIAN - “One of the most influential musicians of all time”
Neil Young - “As much of a great guitar player as Jimi [Hendrix] was, Bert Jansch is the same thing for acoustic guitar…and my favourite.”
Johnny Marr - “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 [1965], I couldn’t believe it. It was so far ahead of what everyone else was doing. No one in America could touch that.”
