The Track

One for Bert – recorded at Sandy Bells, Edinburgh, 22 December 2018

Mike says:  “It crossed my mind that the guitar being played in Sandy Bells, the legendary folk pub of the ’60s and ’70s scene, might add a dimension to this project. Sandy Bells epitomises the folk pubs which Bert started off in, before his London days.  It remains very much its old self, and is still a mecca for folkies. Bert used to like to compose by just communing with the guitar and then working and re-working/re-voicing the ideas that flowed out. So, I have tried to use that process for this track. The result is a bit old school and is a nod to the early Bert/John/Pentangle days. I have called it ‘One for Bert’ and I hope it will resonate with Bert fans.”
