Subject: Jacqui McShee - Before Pentangle

I have been a big fan of Jacqui McShee and Pentangle for many years.

However, I was curious about her singing in the early days before she joined Pentangle. Was she singing solo or in a duo in folk clubs in England and is there any footage of her anywhere (before Pentangle) in small folk venues?

I believe she sang solo in folk clubs. I saw her a few times with John Renbourn, before Pentangle was founded. Previously to Jacqui, Renbourn had accompanied Dorris Henderson.

Are there any videos around of Jacqui when she was performing solo before she was part of Pentangle? Was she performing in clubs in London or other areas of England? I don't know what area of England she was living in or clubs she sang at in the early days when she was a solo performer before joining Pentangle.

I don't think video had been invented then Kathy! Someone maybe had an old cine camera? I also remember seeing her and John Renbourn at our London Hosputal Medical Coolege Folk Club, probably around 1966.

To Guest, Tattie:

I don't know what it was called actually but any film footage of Jacqui that may be from a club she performed at. I see a lot of performances on YouTube of different singers at clubs in the 60's but I guess it was not video then. I just called it that because I didn't really know what it was called /referred to when they filmed someone playing at a club.   Not familiar with cine cameras. We didn't own one and none of my parent's friends had one either. :-))
Do you remember if Jacqui was singing traditional or what type of songs she was singing? Did she sing solo at all or as a duo only with John? Thanks!

Thank you for the link to the interview. I enjoyed reading it very much and all her wonderful memories of Bert Jansch.
I couldn't agree more with Jacqui's comments about the noise in clubs when you are trying to listen to the singer and people are talking.
I have always thought that was so very rude of people. To add to the mix now we have people on their cell phones and texting at music events. Like Jacqui said, "They should go outside or to the bar."

It was a very good interview/chat and appreciate you taking the time to provide the link.
