Bert Jansch was one of the most influential and unique guitarists emerge from the British folk music scene of the sixties.His influence can be traced in the playing of Neil Young, Jimmy Page, Johnny Marr, and countless others. Over the course of nearly fifty years, he produced a prodigious body of work, as a solo guitarist, singer, and songwriter, as a member of the seminal"folk-baroque" band Pentangle, as a duo with his equally revered friend John Renbourn and in a variety of other ensemble situations.In this DVD, we explore a representative selection from the folk,traditional, and blues segment of his guitar arrangements, rangingfrom simple early folk guitar settings like "Running From Home" to his most iconic, sophisticated, and original accompaniments(e.g., Reynardine, Black Waterside). These are carefully arranged little gems, and his virtuosity as a guitarist allowed him to have a very specific and beautifully wrought arrangement while still showing an ability to create a number of subtle variations which occurred in his recordings over the years.  Rolly Brown first heard Bert's playing in the mid-60s, and has been a fan ever since. For thisproject, Rolly pored over much of the available video and recordings, using the modern technology of "slow-down" software to clarify heretofore elusive details in Bert's playing. Along with basic arrangements, Rolly discusses variations, introductions, and endings where appropriate.Titles include: Running From Home, Blues Run The Game, Strollin' Down The Highway, In The Bleak Midwinter, Angie, One For Jo, Black Waterside, First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Reynardine
