For those of you who like your folk baroque, Scottish guitarist Bert Jansch plays his only Texas show next Friday, June 8, at Houston's quirky Orange Show Center for Visionary Art. The former guitarist for British band Pentangle, Jansch was an influence on his own generation as well as ones to come. Jimmy Page admitted being "obsessed" with him, and his 2006 Drag City sleeper Black Swan featured Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart, as well as some of his best guitar work to date. Dude even just played with Pete Doherty. Jana Hunter opens. Doors at 8pm.
