A sad day for music-lovers . . . in the golden shadows of joy . . .

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Leonard Nimoy and Terry Pratchett, but John Renbourn’s exit leaves the world a darker place. Pentangle’s music, and later John’s solo work, was a strong and golden thread in the musical tapestry I was so lucky to live in. I took it all for granted then, as so many did.

I am sad at this loss, but also filled with gratitude for the many hours of delight I have been so fortunate to enjoy.

It was an added delight to read of his lifestyle in the Scottish Borders; I can’t imagine anything more perfect!
