He was one of the most influential musicians in the world: Bert Jansch. Ten years ago, the Scottish singer and guitarist died of cancer at the age of 67. In 1965 he released his first Folk album and from the beginning inspired numerous other young artists. His third LP included "The Waggoner's Lad" ("Bron-Y-Aur Stomp") and "Blackwaterside" ("Black Mountain Side"), two traditionals whose interpretation served as a template for Led Zeppelin. In 1968 he was part of the founding formation of Pentangle, to which he belonged until 1973 and from 1981 to 1995. Jansch wrote songs for Donovan, Simon & Garfunkel, Al Stewart and Neil Young, among others. In addition to his numerous solo and Pentangle albums, he can also be heard on the records of many other artists, especially from the Folk-Rock genre.
