The Low Call
A piece by Ewan McPherson for Bert Jansch
“Bert’s approach to music has always been an inspiration, and even though he used to play a lot of folk and roots clubs I think his music encompasses a lot more genres than that, he just happened to play acoustic guitar. I think that attitude gave him a lot of freedom to do whatever took his fancy. Certainly, listening a lot to Bert & John albums brought many images and ideas to my mind when I first got tuned onto their sound.
“A couple of Salt House’s reviews have come back with comments like ‘hints of Pentangle’. We didn’t set out to be a tribute band so it must be that Bert’s music is in the great melting pot, long may his legacy continue to bring a lot of happiness with his timeless and beautiful sounds.”
