Bert Jansch and Friends, live at Somerset House, London, 14th July 2007.

Bert Jansch is a bona fide legend in the guitar world, how many other acoustic guitarists can be said to have inspired Page, Townsend, Butler and Marr? You could probably count them all on no hands.

A huge folk star in the '60's and '70's, Jansch has had a big resurgence in this century, partly down to his friendship with Bernard Butler the former Suede guitarist and youngsters producer of choice it seems. Bernard has played on several of Berts records in the past several years (possibly all since 2000's Crimson Moon, I don't own them all and can't be arsed to do the research!), as well as many others, including the other two people present at this performance, the lovely Beth Orton and relatively unknown guitarist Paul Wassif.
