 John Renbourn    1944-2015

 

English guitarist

known for his light-fingered fusion

of classical, folk, blues and jazz

and for his work

with the group the Pentangle

 

(...)

 

Mr. Renbourn was both

an antiquarian and an innovator

— part of a generation

of British and American

guitar virtuosos

who in the 1950s and ’60s

reached deeply into traditions

but were not bound by them.

 

As early as the 1960s,

Mr. Renbourn delved

with scholarly dedication

into medieval and Renaissance music;

his “Complete Anthology of Medieval

and Renaissance Music for Guitar.”

a sheet-music collection of 28 pieces,

was published in 1995.

 

He learned British folk songs

and sang them in an amiable tenor,

and he was drawn

to ragtime and the blues,

particularly the fingerpicking complexity

of early rural blues.
