John Renbourn and Robin Williamson


Luminary acoustic guitarist and songwriter John Renbourn is best known for his collaboration with Bert Jansch. He also enjoyed great success with the folk/jazz fusion band Pentangle with whom he appeared at both the 1969 and 1970 Isle of Wight Festivals. Carnegie Hall and the Newport Folk Festival, Fillmore East and Fillmore West.

John is a musician of an exceptional kind, combining an insight into the techniques of musical structure with an instrumental command and a sense of aesthetic adventurism, which together make him one of the most refreshing, not to say skilled and tasteful guitarists, to grace our ears today.

A John Renbourn concert takes the listener into a rich musical landscape of warm vocals and witty asides about the history of the songs. At the core is a revolutionary guitar style that explores the instrument's potential in unusual and beautiful ways, created and performed by a consummate master.

Scottish multi-instrumentalist, musician, singer, songwriter and master Celtic storyteller Robin Williamson made his name as a member of the Incredible String Band between 1966 and 1974. During that time the band were one of the most popular and influential groups of the era, (including an appearance at Woodstock in 1969).

Though best renowned as a founding member of The Incredible String Band, it's hard to think of anyone else on the contemporary music scene who can demonstrate such a dizzying range of accomplishments. Robin is a songwriter of undisputed stature, a distinctive interpreter of traditional song, a published poet and novelist and author of instructional works for the fiddle and penny whistle, a leading light in the recent revival of storytelling.

John Renbourn and Robin Williamson's live album 'Wheel Of Fortune' was nominated for a Grammy.
