A piece by Tony Henderson for Bert Jansch
Tony says: “This is a song about working on the railroad. I discovered Bert through Pentangle as a teenager back in Toronto. His approach to acoustic guitar was a revelation and also introduced me to the world of English folk song. I’d already started trying to be a proper fingerstyle guitarist having heard Chet Atkins earlier. When I moved to London in the seventies, I went to see him a number of times at various London clubs. Always a joy and an inspiration.”
A master with wood; Tony owns five guitars, all of them made by himself, he rebuilt his house in Cork and even the chairs and lamps in the place are by his own hands.
