John Renbourn biography
Born 8 August 1944 (London, England) - 26 March 2015

JOHN RENBOURN was an English folk guitarist and songwriter known mainly for his early collaboration with BERT JANSCH and his founding of the seminal British folk rock group THE PENTANGLE. A technically proficient player, Renbourn left behind an eclectic body of solo work which encompassed acoustic blues, English traditional song, and medieval English and European music. While mainly contemporary compositions, Renbourn's forays into medieval music recreated the modal scales of Renaissance era music, played on acoustic and electric guitar as well as sitar. Albums of note include "Sir JohnAlot", "The Lady and the Unicorn" and "The Hermit".

Renbourn also collaborated with American blues guitarist STEFAN GROSSMAN and recorded both joint and solo works on Grossman's Shanachie Records label which were tutorial as well as artistic works. Renbourn sporadically collaborated with Pentangle vocalist Jaqui McShee in his group ensembles called the John Renbourn Group. Renbourn also collaborated and recorded with British folk stalwarts ARCHIE FISHER, WIZZ JONES, ROBIN WILLIAMSON, MAGGIE BOYLE and STEVE TILSTON. Having obtained a degree in classical music composition from the Dartington College of Arts in the mid 1980's, Renbourn remained musically active until his death from a heart attack at age 70.

Review by SteveG

— First review of this album —
4 stars John Renbourns' second solo album sets the tone for both his future Pentangle endeavors and his pre Renaissance and pseudo Elizabethan solo outings like Sir John Alot and The Lady And the Unicorn. Renbourn's acoustic playing is virtuoso folk-blues that is tempered by brief forays into psuedo early music like "Ladye Nothinge's Toye Puffe" and "One for William," the latter of which also features oboe. Future Pentangle member Jaqui McShee joins Renbourn on 3 songs but Renbourn's future preoccupation with divergent musical themes would quickly take over his desire to sing and with so much for him to explore in the near future, his limited vocal skills would never be missed. 4 stars
Thanks to kenethlevine for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
