'This is a beautiful film, beautifully made' THE SCOTSMAN
With Billy Connolly at the helm and an amazing cast including Brownie McGhee, Davey Graham, Anne Briggs, Ralph McTell, Martin Carthy, John Renbourn, Hamish Imlach, Jacqui McShee and Al Stewart, 'Acoustic Routes' is the story of one of the world's most influential musicians, Bert Jansch. Influenced by raw blues and with a bewildering technique, Jansch fashioned sublime interpretations of tradition and blues music on the acoustic guitar, a technique that set him apart from his contemporaries and established him as a pivotal innovator of the new acoustic guitar movement. The result was music that had a profound influence on generations of musicians including Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Jimmy Page and continues to inspire today's musicians.
