Musician Bert Jansch was born in Glasglow, Scotland, in 1943. He was one of the founding members of the band Pentangle, formed in 1967. Dubbed as a leading figure in the British folk music renaissance, Jansch toured and recorded during much of the 1960s both as a solo artist and as part of Pentangle. His music is said to have influenced musicians Elton John, Bernie Taupin, Nick Drake, Fleet Foxes, and Devendra Banhart. He was honored with two Lifetime Achievement Awards at the BBC Folk Awards.
