John Renbourn’s Classic Concert To Be Out

John Renbourn always was an individual, even when in PENTANGLE, so many found it quite surprising that the great English artist credited his 1977 album “A Maid In Bedlam” to JOHN RENBOURN GROUP and took the collective – which comprised his former colleague, singer Jacqui McShee, fiddler Sue Draheim and tabla player Keshave Sathe – on the road. On February 14th, 1978 the quartet graced the stage of the “Römer” venue in Bremen to give a concert to be preserved for posterity by Radio Bremen – only that recording became a source for bootlegs, rather than official releases, yet this situation will be remedied on February 26th, 2021, when “A Maid in Bremen (Live at Roemer, Bremen )” is scheduled to see the light of day as CD and digital download.

A brilliant set featuring no less than half of the previous year’s LP, a take on “John Barleycorn” among these – as well as a new reading of PENTANGLE’s “Cruel Sister” – with liner notes penned by Jacqui. A must-have issue.
