Morning Brings Peace of Mind

A piece by Bert, played by Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson

Recorded in West Townshend
March 2022

Rebecca and Ken say: “We have been lifelong fans of the music of Bert Jansch and of Pentangle. Bert has never been off our radar for our Celtic-, Appalachian- and folk-rock-influenced tunes.

“The hopefulness of this song of Bert’s seems right for these times.  Jansch’s pastoral themes and masterful arrangements have been perhaps the single greatest influences on the development of our style of music and its presentation.”

The duo recorded their interpretation of ‘Sylvie’, from Jansch’s Rosemary Lane album, on their debut CD Hungrytown. Previously, Rebecca made two well-received CDs under her own name (produced by Ken), Rebecca Hall Sings (2000) and Sunday Afternoon (2002) on which she sings ‘Rosemary Lane’.

Though they never had the opportunity to perform live with Bert, Rebecca and Ken were fortunate and delighted to open a show for Jansch’s legendary musical partner, guitarist John Renbourn, while he was touring through New York

Artist's own music

Their three CDs, Hungrytown (2008) Any Forgotten Thing (2011), and Further West (2015) have all received high critical acclaim and much airplay.
