We at Furness Tradition were very sad to learn of the passing of John Renbourn last week. Our guitarist friends were obsessed with him and Bert Jansch in the 1960s. One even started smoking the same brand of cigarettes that appeared on the cover of the ‘Bert and John’ LP. His solo work, collaboration with Bert Jansch and Pentangle were enormously influential on folk music in the 60s and 70s.

You can read tributes from the Guardian, the Independent and the New York Times.
