Call out the instigators
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right 
-- "Something In The Air" - Thunderclap Newman

Bert Jansch 1943-2011

I first heard Bert Jansch when I was 16, and his music has never been far from my ear since. While I never got to see him perform as much as I would have liked, those times - both solo and with the original Pentangle - remain magical musical moments that I will never forget.  Bert died on Oct. 5, after a long battle with cancer.  To quote Neil Young: "He is a hero of mine, one of my greatest influences. Bert was one of the all-time great acoustic guitarists and singer songwriters."  He will be dearly missed.
