Bert Jansch

Best known for his work with Pentangle, Bert Jansch has died at the age of 67. A great guitarist, singer and songwriter, Johnny Marr is just one of many guitarists to reference Jansch as a major influence: ‘He completely reinvented guitar playing and set a standard that is still unequalled today … without Bert Jansch, rock music as it developed in the 60s and 70s would have been very different’.

Here’s the beautifully understated One for Jo.

Watch out for the classic knitted jumper about half way through!
