I first discovered Bert when I moved into a bedsit in Ayr, Scotland at the age of 18. The previous tenant had left behind an old LP of Basket of Light by Pentangle. When I played the record, after purchasing a record player from a nearby jumble sale, I was immediately blown away and felt that I had discovered the music that I’d always wanted to hear! soon after I attended a small folk festival in Southern Scotland where Bert was playing. He has been a huge influence on my guitar playing.
