‘…a true celebration of great and heartfelt music.’– Acoustic Guitar”
John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee are two pivotal figures in the history of British folk music. Founding members of the British folk-rock group Pentangle in the 1960s, guitarist John Renbourn and vocalist Jacqui McShee have been musical collaborators and innovators for four decades. Renbourn’s guitar style is a unique product of years of curiosity and investigation. Exploring the guitar in unusual and beautiful ways, John takes his listeners through a luxuriant musical landscape of masterful playing, warm vocals and witty asides. The consummate fingerstylist plays a unique folk-baroque fusion of British and Celtic folk music with jazz, blues, ragtime, classical, Middle Eastern, and pre-Renaissance music. London-born McShee combines an enchanting soprano voice with an experimenter’s outlook. Together, John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee are a magical treat.
