Never saw Jansch or Renbourne live. Or Jacquie. :(

Saw Danny with Richard (the Thompson Twins!) a few times.

Cool!




Last time I was there (in the Gods) was for Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde, a prom concert.

Similar.

Not seen Jansch or Renbourn, but Danny with John Martyn.

Snap!

Yes, but only once

I saw Bert Jansch (that's J-ansch not Y-ansch) twice




.


Last August I told this tale here:

My fave experience was going to see Wizz Jones and Bert Jansch at the Half Moon in Putney, with the singer of a band I was managing. She did not know anything about these guys, she was blown away, and being from West Virginia and playing in a blues band she loved all this stuff. We went to talk to Wizz Jones, and she was saying how much the music meant to her, and I suddenly realised the guy standing next to me sipping a pint was Bert Jansch! Mickey the singer had no idea who he was. I was so shy suddenly I did not say anything to him, but he did a great show after.

There were lots of stops and starts and starting over and retuning and changing mind about songs. Mickey, who knew how I got worked up over a perfect live presentation, whispered to me 'You should manage THIS guy - you'd die of a heart attack every time he gets on stage!' :lol:

I'm realizing in retrospect that another way of saying this is: he plays hard! :D

I had a chat with the lad - it was then that he told me most people mispronounced his name. He was friendly enough

Sorry I keep misspelling his name! It's Renbourn. Renbourn.

I called him 'Yansch', and he corrected me, spitting out 'For fuck's sake - it's not difficult - just ask Carlsson!'

This was at a later meeting in Poundland...

My CD on LIne Record has TERRIFIC sound.

Picked it up for buttons in Tower Records a quarter century ago...
