About the show

Playing tracks by

Pentangle, Bert Jansch .

John Renbourn was one of the most innovative and technically accomplished acoustic guitarist emerging from the 1960's folk revival. Alongside Bert Jansch he developed a "folk baroque" finger style which inspired a whole generation of players. As John's wife Judy Horton was in a unique position to witness the development of this remarkable performer. Judy fills in the details of the journey that John took from being a fellow student at Kingston Art School, to a regular performer at Soho's Les Cousins; then forming Pentangle with Bert, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox which in turn took them from a residency in Tottenham Court Road to America and beyond.

She also lets us know about the proposed memorial concert for John at Cecil Sharp House in September and the sale of his vast collection of instruments that is on at Chandlers Guitars in Kew.
