The late, great John Renbourn

A bow to John Renbourn, one of the acoustic guitar greats, who died last week at the age of 70 (a milestone that seems younger and younger the older we all get!)  Add to that songs to celebrate April and spring, plus a rare version of Dylan's Just Like 'Tom Thumb's Blues - performed by Nina Simone!
