Bert Jansch :: Bert At The BBC

In the spring of 2010, Neil Young dropped the backing band and set across the US on a tour with himself and a guitar. In tow was a soft-spoken Scot a few older than the legendary songwriter. Tagging along as the opener, crowds of Young fans would be exposed to the greatest guitar player they’d likely never heard of before their idol walked out on stage, alone at the microphone.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss Cover Bert Jansch’s ‘It Don’t Bother Me’

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss just released a Bert Jansch cover “It Don’t Bother Me.”. From the Scottish folk musician and Pentangle founding member, the track is reworked by the duo with deep percussion hits and Krauss’ searing croon. “It Don’t Bother Me” gradually builds in intensity through the interplaying guitars of Marc Ribot and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo.
