Here’s what the Hartford Advocate had to say about this rare performance:
“If one of the world’s legendary guitarists — a man whom Neil Young likened to “Jimi Hendrix on the acoustic guitar” — performed in Hartford and you missed it, you’d feel pretty doggone sheepish, right? Here’s your chance, then, to avoid sheep status. Bert Jansch, an icon of the U.K. folk-rock scene for the past half-century whose influence is admitted by cross-generational acolytes will play a solo acoustic concert at the Wadsworth Atheneum.
It’s a fitting venue for someone whom many would say was a living work of art. Those lucky enough to attend the Wadsworth show — a rare New England appearance for Jansch in an even rarer intimate 284-seat venue — will have many words of praise to pass along to the sheep who stayed away, with the rest of the herd.” – Hartford Advocate, December 8, 2010
