From the earliest days of Pentangle, John and Jacqui would share infrequent duo gigs. An evening of music from these two friends would always be something very special. Although there were a couple of DVDs released twenty years or so ago, there has never been a live album to truly represent the subtle musical magic that would be conjured up during a performance by these two remarkable musicians.
“…there was something about seeing these two friends together, sparking off each other with such ease, that created a safe space and welcomed you into that space with open arms. And at moments like these, their dry asides about getting old sounded like nothing more than that –the knowing self-deprecations of two musicians that could peel back the years in the time it takes to put on a capo.” ~ brief extract from Pete Paphides sleeve notes
“Two of the greatest names in British folk~rock present an enchanting evening of acoustic music.”
An evening with John Renbourn + Jacqui McShee has been carefully curated and engineered from John’s archive of live recordings by Joel Renbourn.
