MUSIC: Guitar instrumental "Angie"

0:00:030:00:07

Don't film me just yet - get me good side!

0:00:070:00:09

'You are talking to an oddball.'

0:00:280:00:29

I don't play regular music, you know, so...

0:00:290:00:32

I don't always stick to the bars or how many of this, that and the next thing.

0:00:320:00:37

'Most people, actually, you know...'

0:00:370:00:39

if they follow musical rules,

0:00:390:00:41

they wouldn't write songs like I do.

0:00:410:00:44

It's always a challenge to play with Bert,

0:00:440:00:47

and the nicest kind of creative challenge,

0:00:470:00:50

because he and Davey Graham evolved this British style of playing blues and playing guitar, acoustic guitar.

0:00:500:00:56

And that's no underestimation.

0:00:560:00:58

'I've always had that ability to actually play with a sort of variety of people.'

0:00:580:01:04

Some of them have never met each other before.

0:01:040:01:06

'I've had Ralph McTell playing with Johnny Marr. I think it's quite amazing.'

0:01:060:01:12

What Muddy Waters is to Keith Richards or Eric Clapton or whatever...

0:01:120:01:16

When I was growing up, that figure for me

0:01:160:01:19

-was Burt Jansch.

-It's quite exhilarating,

0:01:190:01:21

because you don't know what's gonna happen, really.

0:01:210:01:24

And he does all these little things like dropping a beat,

0:01:240:01:27

just cos he fancies it or he forgets or something. And you're suddenly..."Oh!"

0:01:270:01:31

-'You have to be on your toes, that's for sure.

-Johnny was the original fan,

0:01:310:01:37

'and then Bernard was a fan of Johnny's,

0:01:370:01:40

'and through that whole sort of system, we ended up playing - all three of us - together.

0:01:400:01:44

'Bernard and I played together a few times,'

0:01:440:01:47

but getting to play a Pentangle tune with Bert and Jacqui is kind of knockout for me,

0:01:470:01:54

so I'd better get it right.

0:01:540:01:57

We had a rehearsal and ran through everything - once -

0:01:570:02:00

and, amazingly, it all came together very quickly.

0:02:000:02:03

'I know Jacqui backwards, so it clicks into place.

0:02:030:02:07

'I'm just looking forward to actually playing those songs again.

0:02:070:02:10

'It'll be good.'

0:02:100:02:11

'It always makes you feel it's worth actually keeping going,

0:02:140:02:17

'cos most people of my age would have given up ages ago!'

0:02:170:02:21

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:05:120:05:14

Thank you very much. This kind of thing is...

0:05:220:05:27

I suppose what I'm known for.

0:05:270:05:28

This is called Blackwaterside.

0:05:370:05:39

# One morning fair

0:06:220:06:24

# I took the air

0:06:240:06:27

# Down by Blackwaterside

0:06:270:06:32

# Twas in gazing all around me

0:06:330:06:40

# The Irish lad I spied

0:06:400:06:44

# All through the first part of the night

0:06:500:06:54

# We laid

0:06:540:06:57

# Sport and play

0:06:570:06:59

# Till this young man arose

0:06:590:07:02

# And gathered his clothes

0:07:030:07:05

# Saying, "Fare thee well today"

0:07:060:07:11

# Well, then, go home now

0:07:150:07:17

# To your father's garden

0:07:170:07:20

# Go home

0:07:200:07:22

# Weep your fill

0:07:220:07:24

# And think on your own misfortune

0:07:240:07:31

# You've wrought with your wanton will... #

0:07:310:07:35

# One morning fair

0:08:530:08:55

And now I'd like to bring to the stage

0:09:560:09:57

a very dear friend and one of my oldest friends -

0:09:570:10:02

Ralph McTell.

0:10:020:10:04

APPLAUSE

0:10:040:10:08

The song that I first heard Bert playing down at Les Cousins - if there's any here old enough

0:10:160:10:21

to remember Les Cousins in Greek Street -

0:10:210:10:24

and it seemed to sum up...

0:10:240:10:26

..the thoughts and dreams of adventure that were about then.

0:10:270:10:31

# Running, running from home

0:10:490:10:51

# Breaking ties that you've grown

0:10:510:10:54

# Catching dreams from the clouds

0:10:540:10:57

# And you walk on pavements so old

0:11:050:11:08

# You cast a glance at the young

0:11:080:11:10

# Girls a-making their way

0:11:100:11:13

# Yet be a beauty in age

0:11:190:11:21

# A pleasure pleasing my mind

0:11:210:11:24

# Your heart will shatter and a-fall

0:11:240:11:26

# Just like a fly when it's caught

0:11:310:11:34

# The spider soon takes its prey

0:11:340:11:37

# Spins a dance round your heart

0:11:370:11:40

# Yet be a beauty in age

0:11:440:11:47

# A pleasure pleasing my mind

0:11:470:11:49

# Your heart will shatter and a-fall

0:11:490:11:52

# Running, I'm running from home

0:12:070:12:12

# Breaking ties that I've grown

0:12:120:12:15

-BOTH:

-# And catching dreams from the clouds

0:12:170:12:21

# Running, I'm running from home

0:12:240:12:27

0:12:270:12:29

-TOGETHER:

-# Running, running from home

-Breaking ties that you've grown

0:12:290:12:32

This one's called Moonshine.

0:13:090:13:10

# Welcome to the sweet leaves

0:13:450:13:48

# That dance so merrily

0:13:480:13:51

# How I wish the wind would do the same for me

0:13:510:13:55

# But rooted here like a withered tree am I

0:13:570:14:02

# And I watch both day and night pass by

0:14:020:14:08

# Twas a cruel and wicked master

0:14:150:14:18

# Stole my freedom and charged me

0:14:180:14:21

# To fight for him and win him victory

0:14:210:14:25

# But now here am I in this damp and dreary cell

0:14:260:14:31

# And all I know of time is the church bell

0:14:320:14:37

-BOTH:

-# Moonshine soft and clear

0:14:440:14:47

# In a death-black endless sky

0:14:470:14:50

# Cartwheeling bright stars twinkling down

0:14:500:14:54

# And from the shadows calls the night owl

0:14:550:15:00

# He's echoing my loneliness

0:15:010:15:06

# Come the stag down from the mountain

0:15:350:15:38

# Come the owl from where he sleeps

0:15:380:15:41

# Come the eagle from his high, high nest

0:15:410:15:45

# To where the salmon does swim and does leap

0:15:450:15:50

# Come fast and boldly set me free

0:15:500:15:57

# I dream of waters flowing

0:16:030:16:06

# Sweet air to softly breathe

0:16:060:16:09

# Of meadowlands where the wagtail bobs and weaves

0:16:090:16:13

# Of sunny days where children dance and play

0:16:140:16:19

# And sweet music to drive my grief away

0:16:200:16:24

# And sweet music to drive my grief away. #

0:16:250:16:30

..idols...

0:16:510:16:54

is a man called Davey Graham.

0:16:540:16:56

I've known that man since I was 16 years old.

0:16:580:17:02

And he's one of the greatest guitar players I've ever heard.

0:17:030:17:07

And this is his famous Angie.

0:17:080:17:10

APPLAUSE

0:20:020:20:04

An old Pentangle number, Bruton Town.

0:28:490:28:52

-BOTH:

-# In Bruton town there lived a farmer

0:29:050:29:08

# Who had two sons and a daughter dear

0:29:080:29:12

# By night and day they were contriving

0:29:120:29:15

# To fill their parents' heart with fear

0:29:150:29:19

# He told his secrets to no other

0:29:270:29:30

# But to her brother this he said

0:29:300:29:34

# "I think our servant courts our sister

0:29:340:29:37

# "I think they have a mind to wed

0:29:370:29:40

# "I'll put an end to all their courtship

0:29:400:29:43

# "I'll send him silent to his grave"

0:29:430:29:47

-JACQUI:

-# They asked him to go a-hunting

0:29:550:29:58

# Without any fear or strife

0:29:580:30:01

# And these two bold and wicked villains

0:30:010:30:04

# They took away this young man's life

0:30:040:30:07

# And in the ditch there was no water

0:30:150:30:18

# Where only bush and briars grew

0:30:180:30:21

# They could not hide the blood of slaughter

0:30:210:30:24

# So in the ditch his body they threw

0:30:240:30:28

# When they returned home from hunting

0:30:430:30:47

# She asked for her servant man

0:30:470:30:51

# "I ask because I see you whisper

0:30:510:30:54

# "So, brothers, tell me if you can"

0:30:540:30:58

# "Oh, sister, you do offend me

0:30:580:31:01

# "Because you examine me

0:31:010:31:05

# "We've left him where we've been a-hunting

0:31:050:31:09

# "No more of him we could not see"

0:31:090:31:12

# As she lay dreaming on her pillow

0:31:120:31:16

# She thought she saw her heart's delight

0:31:160:31:19

# By her bedside as she lay weeping

0:31:190:31:23

# He was dressed in his bloody coat

0:31:230:31:27

# "Don't weep for me my dearest jewel

0:31:270:31:30

# "Don't weep for me nor care nor pine

0:31:300:31:34

# "For your two brothers killed me cruel

0:31:340:31:37

# "In such a place you may me find"

0:31:370:31:44

# As she rose early the next morning

0:32:100:32:13

# With heavy sigh and bitter groan

0:32:130:32:16

# The only love that she admired

0:32:160:32:19

# Lay in the ditch where he was thrown

0:32:190:32:22

# Three days and nights she did sit by him

0:32:260:32:31

# And her poor heart was filled with woe

0:32:310:32:37

# Till cruel hunger crept upon her

0:32:370:32:42

# And home she was obliged to go. #

# Sitting on the river bank

0:48:370:48:39

# Watching the water flow

# Sitting here thinking and a-wondering

0:48:420:48:46

# Which way to go

0:48:460:48:48

# Now the river sings the sweetest songs

0:48:490:48:52

# In a million harmonies

0:48:520:48:54

# But the sun shines brighter on the other side

0:48:540:48:57

# That's where I want to be

0:48:570:49:00

# So, please, Mr Ferryman

0:49:010:49:04

# Won't you take me to the other side?

0:49:040:49:06

# Where the songbirds sing for me

0:49:060:49:08

# Where life is led by the hand of fate

0:49:080:49:12

# It's how it ought to be

0:49:120:49:14

# When the evening shadows reach out

0:49:290:49:31

# At the setting of the sun

0:49:310:49:33

# Will I still be wishing and a-wondering

0:49:330:49:36

# When the morning comes?

0:49:360:49:38

# For I once could swim against the tide

0:49:400:49:42

# Like the salmon who swims for home

0:49:420:49:44

# But I'll be happy now just to hitch a ride

0:49:440:49:48

# And make it on my own

0:49:480:49:50

# So, please, Mr Ferryman

Legendary Scottish singer, songwriter and guitarist Bert Jansch performs a career retrospective concert at LSO St Luke's in East London to celebrate his 60th birthday. Guests include ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, Ralph McTell and fellow Pentangle member Jacqui McShee.

Bert Jansch was one of the key trailblazers of the British folk scene of the 1960s. As a soloist, and then with folk-jazz outfit Pentangle, Jansch blazed a trail for an iconoclastic blend of folk, blues, jazz and original songs that has made him a hero to the likes of Neil Young and Jimmy Page. His guitar and singing style remain unique.

This concert features many of the songs that Jansch has played throughout his career, including Davy Graham's Anji, Jackson C Frank's Blues Run The Game and traditional material like Blackwaterside, together with more recent songs like Riverbank and Crimson Moon.
