This was quite nice to see and it also tells just how deeply the music of Gordon Lightfoot has penetrated into Canadian culture. That is not an easy song to pull off, not to mention the work and time these folks put in learning their own distinctive parts. Many thanks Jesse Jo. Ron J.

Your more than welcome Ron, and I agree that it is not an easy song to be able to do. And they pulled it off quite well with each of their different instruments.

Those kids did a great job with the song....very nice to listen and watch that.

It made me feel so good for Gordon to have such an honor. You can tell by that clip how much people in Canada love and appreciate him and his music.

That had to make him feel like a million bucks!
I am sure he knows he is loved but it never hurts to have it displayed in such a joyful way as they did.
