A Tribute To John Renbourn

renbourn_0.jpg

Legendary British steel-string guitarist John Renbourn passed away suddenly last week at age 70. Tomorrow (this Saturday) at 3 p.m. on KALW's "Folk Music & Beyond," we'll present a special tribute to John Renbourn. During his fifty-plus years in music, Renbourn recorded thirty albums, in addition to his work with the great British band Pentangle. His music covered a wide variety of styles: folk, blues, jazz, early music, Baroque, and everything in between. We'll listen to lots of John's music, going back to his early days with Bert Jansch and Pentangle. We'll also share heart-felt 
  remembrances from some of our listeners.
