Clive Carroll played the music of John Renbourn on Friday October 20th 2023
For those who followed the folk revival of the 1960's and the music of the cult band Pentangle, John Renbourn's music needs little introduction. Spanning musical genres from blues and jazz through to folk, early music and original compositions he left behind a sumptuous catalogue of recordings which demonstrated not only his extraordinary talent as a guitar player but also his great musical depth. Any boundaries which may have existed previously were blurred by John's eclectic taste, alongside a level of artistry and delicacy which led the way in the evolution of the steel-strung guitar.
This was a rare, opportunity to hear some of John's greatest compositions performed live by one of the World's finest guitarists who regularly shared the same stage. Clive Carroll was recently described by Total Guitar Magazine as "...arguably the most accomplished fingerstylist in the world today…" and like John, he is equally at home playing Mississippi Blues as he is playing the Elizabethan lute music of John Dowland. On stage, Clive's entertaining performance transfixed the audience whether they were guitar enthusiasts or not. Coupled with Dariush Kanani's stunningly good technique inspired by his heroes John Renbourn and Bert Jansch,
