Bert Jansch 1943-2011

Guitarist Bert Jansch passed away last night after a battle with Cancer. I saw him in 1979 supporting Fairport Convention at Sunderland Poly. Sadly of the photographs I took that night I only took 2 or Bert and both ended up out of focus!



I really like this picture – I took it at Sunderland Poly on 1st March 1980 – just over 30 years ago. I found the negatives recently and scanned them in. At the time I couldn’t get any decent pictures from them as the light on the night was awful – almost non existent. However with modern digital techniques I managed to get a half decent picture from them.
