Happy birthday, John Renbourn

As one of two guitarists in Pentangle, John Renbourn’s contributions were often overshadowed by the talents of Bert Jansch, despite Renbourn’s own adroit guitar mastery. Watch some clips and see for yourself. Also, just watch all the early Pentangle footage. There’s a suprising amount online, and all of it is exceptional.

This clip of Hunting Song is a perfect example of the chemistry between Renbourn and Jansch and the subtle interplay between the two, each playing foil to the other.

I love this performance with Renbourn on sitar and Jansch on banjo
