Bert Jansch in Oakland
When I started doing posters about 9 months ago, I made a short list of the performers I wanted to do posters for. Bert Jansch was one of those artists. Bert was scheduled to play a show last Summer in Felton and he unfortunately had to cancel due to health problems. I was kind of hoping he would be back, and indeed he is, in a big way. This month he has joined Neil Young as the special guest on Neil's solo tour of the East Coast and Southern states. Bert is playing 3 or 4 dates on the West Coast at the end of the Neil Young tour. Neil's wife, Pegi is opening these shows. And I am doing the poster for Oakland, Stacie Willoughby is doing the poster for Santa Cruz ( also a silkscreen print that she will have for sale at that show ). Many thanks to Stacie, Britt at folkYEAH! and to Bert. I am really looking forward to seeing one of my heroes.
