John Renbourn, R.I.P.

John RenbournJohn Renbourn, one of the most exquisite and influential English guitarists, passed away on March 26th. Most famous for his work, together with fellow folk maven Bert Jansch, in PENTANGLE, Renbourn arrived at the scene before that, in the early ’60s, and started interweaving traditional and rock idioms to a great effect. Later, in the ’70s, such John’s albums as “The Lady And The Unicorn” were homes for blues and classical pieces, too, alongside Medieval material. Without him, current musical landscape wouldn’t be what it is now. A true innovator.
