The Genius Of Bert Jansch, BBC 4

THE GENIUS OF BERT JANSCH: Folk, Blues and Beyond
BBC Four - Friday 28th March at 2200
At the end of 2013, a gathering of folk luminaries occurred to honour the departed genius that was Bert Jansch, with a concert at The Royal Festival Hall in London. Martin Simpson, Martin Carthy, Danny Thompson, Ralph McTell, Robert Plant, Bonnie Dobson, Lisa Knapp, Donovan and many more, were all invited to participate and perform music made famous by Bert and also music that was influential as he developed as a singer and musician.
It was a very moving and impressive concert, MC'd by our very own, Martin Simpson, who also musically directed the final ensemble pieces. The whole event was filmed by BBC 4 and you can see the finished, 90 min programme this Friday 28th March at 10pm, on - of course - BBC 4!
