Event Archive - John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee

Fri. September 24th 2004 8 pm @  St. James Community Hall (All Ages) 8 pm
$20 ($17 members)
Presented by: The Rogue Folk Club
Master guitarist John Renbourn and vocalist Jacqui McShee, bywords in the British folk-rock world since they helped found the seminal group Pentangle in the late 60s, bring to the stage the rich repertoire and shared experience that is the fruit of four decades of musical collaboration. Exploring the guitar in unusual and beautiful ways, John Renbourn takes his listeners through a luxuriant musical landscape of masterful playing, warm vocals, and witty asides. One of the world's foremost fingerstyle guitarists, John's unique sound is a fusion of British and Celtic folk music with jazz, country blues, ragtime, classical, Middle Eastern and pre-Renaissance music -- a style often called "folk-baroque." Known for her lovely soprano and wide-ranging musical tastes, London-born Jacqui McShee has remained a constantly experimenting presence in Pentangle through many personnel changes (including John's departure in 1978); in 1999 the group released Passe Avant (Park Records), its first album in its current incarnation as "Jacqui McShee's Pentangle."
