AllMusic Review by

Keeper of the Vine presents a collection of songs from the fertile collaboration of John Renbourn and Stefan Grossman in the late '70s and '80s. Renbourn is known for playing medieval, early classical, traditional blues, rock, and contemporary jazz. Grossman is more known for ragtime, Delta blues, boogie, and American folk styles; the remarkable thing is how well they mesh together, aided by their love for the acoustic guitar. This is a fine album that manages to educate and enthrall the listener while conveying the history of a great partnership.
