Robert Plant and Eric Clapton confirmed for Bert Jansch tribute concert

Robert Plant and Eric Clapton are among the artists confirmed for A Celebration of Bert Jansch, a concert to be held at London's Royal Festival Hall on December 3, 2013.

The Festival Hall was the venue for Pentangle's first major performance in 1967 and the group recorded part of their Sweet Child album there in 1968. The original line-up reformed to play at the Royal Festival Hall exactly 40 years later and a Pentangle show there in August 2011 proved to be Jansch's final performance.

The complete line up for A Celebration of Bert Jansch features (subject to change) is:

Bernard Butler
Mara Carlyle
Martin Carthy
Eric Clapton
Pentangle's Terry Cox, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson
Bonnie Dobson
Donovan
Gordon Giltrap
Roy Harper
Wizz Jones
Lisa Knapp
Beverley Martyn
Ralph McTell
Robert Plant
Martin Simpson
Paul Wassif

The show is in aid of the Bert Jansch Foundation, a charity set up by Jansch's family and colleagues in his memory on what would have been his 70th birthday (3 November 2013).

The concert will be filmed and a highlights programme broadcast on BBC4 in early 2014.
