Bert Jansch - 60th Birthday Concert (full video)
Bert Jansch, legendary songwriter and guitarist, is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential musicians of all time. Since the mid-1960s, generation after generation have been held spellbound by his extraordinary groundbreaking acoustic guitar playing and classic emotive songs. Jimmy Page, Neil Young, Nick Drake, Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Beth Orton have all been devotees, and further generations, led by Devendra Banhart and Pete Doherty, are still discovering Jansch for themselves.
Filmed at LSO St Luke's in East London to celebrate his 60th birthday, this concert features many of the songs that Bert has played throughout his career, including Davy Graham's Anji, Jackson C Frank's Blues Run The Game and traditional songs like Blackwaterside, together with more recent songs like Riverbank and Crimson Moon.
