    Influential Guitarist John Renbourn, Co-Founder Of Pentagle, Dies : NPR

    Pentangle(and Fairport, of course)sparked my interest in deep British folk music(and exponentially, all traditional Celtic styles); I've seen bassist Danny Thompson(just brilliant)with Richard Thompson many times, and a reconstituted Pentangle live in the 90's. Also a Renbourn/McShee duo performance. Back in the day, Jacqui was very easy on the eyes, I can't imagine what it was like being in a band with her. All great talents, JR will be missed.

    RIP! Way back when I recall lots of folks seemed to have his Sir John Alot of Merrie Englandes Musyk Thyng and ye Grene Knyghte album, which had a great folk/Celtic/classical-mashup sound to it.

    RIP - a great musician. I loved his work with Pentangle, his solo stuff, and his collaboration with Robin Williamson of the Incredible String Band.
