Event description

Description

A talk by Max Reinhardt

Recognised as one of the great influences on modern fingerstyle playing, Bert Jansch, who is buried in Highgate Cemetery East together with his wife Loren Auerbach, was among the greatest folk guitarists of his generation. Alongside his bandmate John Renbourn, and Davy Graham, he forged a path along which others followed. Echoes of his playing can be found even in great guitarists such as Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, who realised Jansch’s style could accompany folk songs in a way which would make them flourish.

Max Reinhardt, who presents BBC3’s Late Junction, will put Jansch into the context of his peers and the music they were making, and will illustrate the talk with examples of their playing.
