It is our great misfortune to post this bit of news: guitarist and singer of songs Bert Jansch has passed away. His career as a musician was a long and storied one, and his contributions will be remembered as long as music is remembered. A complete account of Bert's achievements and many other personal reminiscences can be found in a myriad of tributes appearing elsewhere on this sad day. For all of us at Drag City, Bert Jansch was an inspiration - and of late, a collaborator and friend. We were honored to work with him and powerfully stimulated every time we saw him play. His music is in our ears today, and our thoughts are with his family and many friends around the world.
