Together in his native Dublin for Christmas 2018, Eoghan O’Shaughnessy and Consuelo Nerea Breschi (The Morning Tree) were delighted to receive the travelling TransAcoustic and perform “My Bonny Boy”, learned from Anne Briggs in tribute to Bert.
“I discovered Bert’s music shortly before moving to Italy, and it summed up everything I had been looking for in a guitarist. The feeling, the technique, the repertoire, the intuition. It was like he was purposely *not* adding things to the music in a way that made you feel them even more in the delivery. And after that I was hooked.”
Eoghan adds: “It’s really is a great model of a guitar. I can see why Bert played these. This one is particularly suited to finger-picking! Might have to get one for myself.”
