Posted on December 5, 2013 | by Amber von Nagel

To remember guitarist Jack Rose on the anniversary of his death, filmmaker Jesse Sheppard has released a never-before-seen clip of Rose playing "Kensington Blues."

Rose died on December 5, 2009 of a heart attack. He was best known for his solo-guitar country-blues and ragtime tunes as well as his work with noise/drone band Pelt.

Jesse Sheppard took the newly-released footage for his 2010 documentary The Things We Used to Do, which featured performances by Jack Rose and Glenn Jones. The footage was never used in the final cut of the documentary, but has been released on the anniversary of Rose's death to commemorate the esteemed guitarist.
