A momentous show as Bernard passes on a beautiful Yamaha guitar to James Walbourne of The Pretenders in aid of The Bert Jansch Foundation and their Around the world in 80 plays project where one notable guitarist nominates another to play and look after a guitar in its journey round the world. The foundation helps acoustic musicians in their early careers and Bernard is one of their patrons. There's jazz and folk and noodling aplenty to celebrate the great artist Bert was.
