Peace Will Come Again
A piece by Fintan Lucy for Bert Jansch
This song of Fintan’s, ‘Peace will Come Again’ is featured in the US movie Blind Pass. Fintan says: “I first heard Bert Jansch’s music a teenager on a Pentangle cassette in the 70’s.
I was slowly learning to play acoustic guitar and the sound electrified me. Bert Jansch to me is the embodiment of the meeting of folk music and the sixties, a force and a feeling who has directly and indirectly seeped into my own humble efforts as a songwriter and guitarist. I’m lucky to have finally got to see him play live in my native Cork in 2006.
