For Wizz’s playing. Whenever Bert witnessed Wizz

Friend to Wizz… Can’t beleive he’s not on the

I was so fortunate to see bert play in the yeovil merlin center in ’99-‘00.Till this day i’m still lost for words if i try to describe his performance.Nearly 2 hours of magic is as close as it will get.Bert did things on his acoustic that im sure are not meant to be done.
I only saw bert once(live)and that show was solo.So to see others who fit into a pentangle line up will be the cherry.
By the way,whilst looking through line up and seeing the expected cast,i did’nt see john remborne(excuse the spelling),was this an oversight?
If anyone can shed any light on this then please do,my e-mail ad’ is,gingershoes8@gmail.com.many thanks and see you at the gig.
