Rolling Stone had published today that Neil Young is about to go on tour with no other then folk legend and my personal mentor – Bert Jansch.
5 shows were booked so far, listed here below.
Neil Young said in early ninghties, that Jansch did to the acoutsic guitar what Hendrix did to the electric guitar.
Bert’s playing had influneced Young’s tremendously, which can mostly be presented in Young’s playing on Ambulance Blues, and the strange similairty to Bert’s Needle Of Death.
The two had played together in the past, see this video.
The booked shows:
May 26 – Louisville, KY @ The Louisville Palace Theatre
May 29 – Atlanta, GA @ Fox Theatre
May 30 – Spartanburg, SC @ Spartanburg Mem Auditorium
June 1 – Nashville, TN @ Ryman Auditorium
June 2 – Nashville, TN @ Ryman Auditorium
An amazing song of Bert’s, has nothing to do with this post; Bert Jansch – Fresh As a Sweet Sunday Morning
