Bert Jansch - Scrolling down the Highway - 2CD+DVD Album

£9.99 GBP
SECDP147

Format: 2CD/DVD

Bert Jansch was the Jimi Hendrix of the folk world, an experience you would not forget in a hurry. A true romantic whose voyage of discovery would find an uneasy Scotsman travelling to London in the early 1960's in search of greatness.
Bert Jansch's musical influences included acoustic blues legends Big Bill Broonzy and Brownie McGhee, whom Jansch first saw playing at The Edinburgh Howff Folk Club in 1960 and, much later, claimed that he'd "still be a gardener" if he hadn't encountered McGhee and his music.
Jansch was also strongly influenced by the British folk music tradition, particularly by Anne Briggs and, to a lesser known, A.L. Lloyd. Other influences included jazz artist Charles Mingus and this added additional flavour to the musical mix of influences.
Bert Jansch was totally unique, an innovator in his own type of guitar playing influencing such great artists as Jimmy Page, Neil Young and Johnny Marr to name just a few.
