On 05 December 2018 four guitars were sent on their way around the world by the Bert Jansch Foundation to be played by musicians inspired by Bert Jansch. The guitars have already stopped over with Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler, Graham Coxon and Beth Orten. One of the guitars is coming to Belfast to long time Bert fan Steve McCann.

Steve McCann has shared bills with Martin Carthy, Carine Polwart, Devon Sproule and Paul Curreri playing Jansch material and Jansch inspired originals. He met Bert Jansch on a number of occasions and sought out and spoke with many of Bert’s contemporaries such as John Renbourn, Wizz Jones, Martin Carthy and Jimmy Page.

This event is a celebration of Bert’s music in the intimate Green Room with performances from Steve McCann and Special Guests including;- Colin Harper, writer, musician and Jansch biographer. Tanya Mellotte, songwriter, vocalist, producer. John McGurgan, singer songwriter, touring musician and sound engineer

Sunday 20 January 2019, 7pm at the Green Room, Hill Street Belfast.
