Jory Nash looking smashing with a fab new hat, David Newland with his adorable Ukelele and Nathan Rogers (son of Stan and Ariel Rogers) with a voice like his dad but he has his own unique sound and talents..I was very happy to hear him.

What was he doing in the last picture? Was he singing, talking, ???

The picture of you and Gord was really good. He looks good and has a sneaky look on his face.....where were his hands? Is that the surprise for you?

I've changed the pic - I toned it down a bit...I really like it even with no flash..I may hire David Newland to be my official photographer..lol
He had just told me something and was pleased I was pleased to hear it...
more later...

I'll see about fixing the 'thumbnail' it wasn't my pic..might be David's..I'll check..
What he was doing was one of the surprises....he got up and did some of The Wreck with a performer, Richard Knechtal...as a back up singer!

hanging at the bar with the ever so talented and adorable David Newland.

another lovely shot of you (and David this time)...i prefer non-flash also but sometimes there's no choice...i have a setting that takes 2 shots in succession, one flash and one natural light...i always prefer the latter unless it's midnight

ok, all cool shots and nice videos (especially GL mingling) ...that James Dean took some nice shots

GL's facial expressions are wonderful in all of them, the one with Dan Hill is great as are many others where he's beaming

these three are really great art, imo

what is the band on his wrist supporting? Haiti?

The Way We Feel.
A Celebration of Gordon Lightfoot and his music.
8th year.
Hugh’s Room, Toronto http://www.hughsroom.com
Friday January 22, 2010
Lisa and I headed to Toronto mid afternoon on a grey dismal day in Southern Ontario. The temps were above seasonal but the lack of sun made it feel colder. We checked into our hotel and then got on the subway for the 20 minute trip to Hugh’s Room for dinner and an evening of Lightfoot music performed by the best of the best talent in the roots/folk community.
We were greeted by the ever darling, adorable, talented and charming Jory Nash who is co-founder (with Aengus Finnan) of the shows going back to their inception prior to Lightfoot falling ill in Sept. 2002. The first of the “tribute” shows was in early 2003. The amount of work involved in the logistics of getting the talent lined up, housed and fed is monumental and I’m sure the talents of Rachel Barreca are missed. But Jory pulls it off every year and it just gets better! We just didn’t know how much better it would get though!

The show started at 8:50 with the incomparable emceeing talent of David Newland. Actually HE was introduced by Sheilagh Rogers of CBC radio!
David started a wonderful event in Toronto that has just passed its first year in existence and is growing every week. It is called the Corktown Ukelele Jam http://torontoukes.com/about.php?mn=00 so it was only fitting that he perform his tune with one of his many ukes.

David Newland was accompanied by the `house band` and sang Early Morning Rain. It was sweet and sad and lovely. I will never listen to it quite the same way again. The uke sound was perfect.
David introduced the house band – David Matheson on piano, David Woodhead on bass, Jason Fowler on assorted guitars and Christine Bougie on assorted percussion and lap steel.
http://www.christinebougie.com/about
http://www.maplemusic.com/artists/dma/bio.asp
http://www.davidwoodhead.com
http://www.jasonfowler.ca
http://www.jorynash.com/main-set.html
http://www.davidnewland.com/performer_bio.html

This year would have a different sound than previous – no violin or fiddle with Anne Lindsay and the addition of a piano and lap steel were some big changes.

David Matheson was first up and sang ``Go My Way`` from the Summer Side of Life LP. His voice is so suited to Lightfoot tunes and his guitar playing is masterful. He then sang ``Your Loves Return``( ``brackets-Stephen Foster-Brackets-Ringo`s Theme``) It was nice to hear that pretty tune.

Richard Knechtel was a new performer this year and sang ``The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald`` playing harmonica and 6 string guitar. One of the strings broke when he started so he borrowed David Matheson`s guitar saying ``The Wreck of the Yamaha`` and that he`d be shopping for a new one tomorrow.LOL.. His second song was from Harmony album - ``River of Light`` and he did a beautiful job on it. It was nice to hear a more recent tune. http://www.greentreemusic.com/rk.htm

Madison Violet (formerly MadViolet) – Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac have performed at previous tribute shows so it was nice to see them back this year. These ladies have powerful, gorgeous harmonies. They sang ``Poor Little Alison`` and ``Sundown`` The last time they performed at the shows and met Lightfoot he asked how they split their royalties. Brenley said they shared them 50-50 and then asked him ``what royalties!`` http://www.madisonviolet.com

The Undesirables were up next. They were at the show last year too and provided a very animated performance. Tonight was to be no different. Corin Redmond and Sean Cotton certainly made the Lightfoot tunes their own. They sang ``Shadows`` and ``Fast Freight`` I find I hold my breath when watching them perform – they are both always moving and are very animated...even during the ballads. Fast Freight was written by Terry Gilkyson (father of Eliza who was around 12 back 48 years ago in January 1962 when Terry Whelan and Gordon Lightfoot as ``The Two Tones`` recorded it) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Gilkyson
http://www.theundesirables.com/index.php?show=5

David Newland said he was going to reach out and acknowledge someone sitting in the audience who has been to just about all of these shows over 8 years here at Hugh’s and on the road. Then he said he wanted to wave hello to Char Westbrook! He said they appreciate my major, major fandom and said I was one of the folks who Gordon calls “The Net People” who basically stalk him via the internet..lol. He wanted to “commend my support of them and that I always do a nice write up about them …as long as we don’t embarass them from the stage!!” LoL.. Very nice shout out!

Suzie Vinnick is a fave performer of mine and I always look forward to hearing her. She puts her own bluesy influence into the Lightfoot tunes and sang ``That`s What You Get For Lovin` Me`` and ``I`d Do It Again`` - wow. She just won another Maple Blues award! http://www.suzievinnick.com

I must mention that the house band plays such an important part to the sound each performer has for the tunes they chose. The lap steel and piano added a dimension to each song that really made them special. David Matheson is such a multi talented performer and Chris Bougie on lap steel was awesome. What a fabulous sound...and amazing to watch her play.
Please note that all the links to artist sites will probably link you to YouTube clips, MySpace, Facebook etc.. check them out!

Nathan Rogers was up next. He is the son of another Canadian icon, the late Stan Rogers. Nathan was around 4 when his father tragically passed away. His fathers influence, along with that of his uncle Garnet comes across in this young man. What a wonderful stage presence and voice. He is a masterful guitar player as well. It was a real treat to see him perform as he said he was doing ``a song with 81 verses and no chorus which I have written on the top of my guitar! He wasn’t going to lie to us, he said he was going to cheat but he would sing it beautifully! Then he launched into one of my favourite songs – The Ballad of Yarmouth Castle. It was a wonderful version! Nathan then recounted he learned to play the next song when he did back up for Jim Keelaghan who did it on the BEAUTIFUL tribute album a few years ago. The summer previous to that he took his 12 string and hitch-hiked through the western provinces. He was picked up by an old dude in a truck who asked him where he was going. He said he was going to the folk festival up in Jasper where his uncle was playing. The guy said “oh you like folk music eh?, I used to be in a folk trio.” Nathan thought “oh yeah, you and everybody else buddy.” But he said “oh yeah, I like folks music, who did you play with?” And the old dude said “have you ever heard of Gordon Lightfoot?” and Nathan said he was waiting for the bullshit story of the century so he said “of course I’ve heard of Gordon Lightfoot.” Turns out that the old dude that picked me up was John Stockfish! Nathan then did a rousing, energetic version of The Canadian Railroad Trilogy. http://www.nathanrogers.ca/home.html

INTERMISSION

Jason Fowler has been with the shows since the beginning as part of the house band and performing his two song choices every year. http://www.jasonfowler.ca This year Rick Fines was not appearing. He usually does an amazing blues rendition of Ribbon of Darkness. Jason put his spin on it this year…still a blues feel though and it was wonderful. It’s amazing that when listening to a Lightfoot tune in such a different way you can ‘forget’ how the original sounded for a little while! Jason’s second tune was one that no one has ever done before – Bells of the Evening. It was lovely and nice to hear.

Brian MacMillan tours with John McDermott (as does Jason Fowler) He wanted to know if we felt like singing and divided the audience into 3 parts – each singing different notes and then all of us together, as he started his song – I Heard You Talking In Your Sleep. He then picked up his electric guitar and did a long lead in to Cold On The Shoulder with Jason and David Woodhead helping out. Brian sounds a bit like James Taylor and has a great voice. David Newland had a backyard concert a couple of summers ago where Brian performed as well as Jory and we really enjoyed hearing him there. http://www.myspace.com/brianmacmillan

David Newland then acknowledged Aengus Finnan who was in attendance but did not perform.

Next up was Jory Nash looking so dapper in his hat and vest. He sang Summer Side Of Life and then my favourite that he does, Mother Of A Miner’s Child. Oh my I loved it! He has such a unique voice and way of presenting a song. Jory spoke about Gordon showing up last year in a big snowstorm and how he held up the show for a few minutes until he arrived but Gordon arrived after a couple of performers had played. He didn’t have his guitar tho but just before the first half was over Jory got word that Gordon was having a great time and wanted to do a song but would have to borrow one! Jory was finishing up the first set so he had the honour and pleasure to introduce Gordon Lightfoot at his own tribute and lending him his guitar…which he put out of tune! http://www.jorynash.com

Lori Cullen http://www.loricullen.com/home.html was up next. Last year she did Song For A Winter’s Night and Gordon told David Newland that he loved her version. This year she sang Rainy Day People with David Matheson on piano. Then she sang If You Could Read My Mind, also in her slow jazz style. She mentioned that after the show Gordon spoke with her and put his face up to hers (he has the softest face!) and he said “I think you’ve got a hit there young lady.”

The Good Lovelies – a trio of young ladies with incredible harmonies, new to the shows said that for tonight they would change their name to the GORD Lovelies. http://www.goodlovelies.com Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore form the four year old group. They sang Alberta Bound and Song For A Winter’s Night. Their harmonies were effortless and so sweet. They mentioned performing at a Springsteen tribute concert and being nervous about it..and then finding out that one table of people sitting in front of them had collectively seen 700 Springsteen concerts.

Old Man Luedecke (Chris Luedecke) http://www.oldmanluedecke.ca is actually a young guy with a banjo. He said his mother had two Lightfoot albums while he was growing up and he would perform the first songs on both. He sang Wherefor and Why and played the banjo – it was awesome! He said when he was 16 he was grounded for 3 months for having a house party when Tom Cochrane’s “Life Is A Highway” came out and that’s when he listened to the Lightfoot albums. He had to buy a record player to play his mum’s album so he could learn it. He also sang Steel Rail Blues. It was quite a treat to hear Lightfoot tunes with a banjo but not with a dominant bluegrass sound.

Liam Titcomb http://www.liamtitcomb.com was at the shows last year and has spent the last year busking across Canada and raised $50,000.00 for War Child Canada. He’s a tall 22 year old, born into another musical family and makes the Lightfoot tunes he chose his own. He sang Carefree Highway and Cotton Jenney with some great energy and guitar work from Jason and David.

Group FINALE – all assembled onstage to sing Rich Man’s Spiritual and take their bows.

Friday night was over but we had decided to attend the Saturday night show – with some gentle nudging from Jory that is..what a sweetie.
Lisa and I made our way home to the Marriott hotel after snapping a few pics. The weather was mild for this time of year so the few blocks to the subway were not like last year when it was so cold.

Another incredible evening celebrating The Man was over…but there was one more to look forward to..what would Saturday night bring???? Stay tuned…

Hey Ed - hope you had a happy birthday too! Glad you're safely home from that nasty west weather..
there's a thread for you - http://www.corfid.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=20617

Chris Bougie played lap steel and it gave the music more of the sound you used to have in the Lightfoot tunes..great stuff..hope to see you down the road at a GC show..take care..

Quite a write up, thanks for taking the time to do that! Especially liked the side stories from all the performers. lol I only knew of one other person that was grounded for 3 months (the entire summer!) and it wasn't me...but we were 15, at a house party and didn't get home until 3am. Until now, I thought my friend was the only kid who ever got grounded for that long!

I'll be checking up on the links and youtube when I have more time. Looking forward to hearing the vocal harmonizing from the gals.

btw I thought your photo w/Gordon looked much better with the warms tones before the edit.

Hey Char.

This is history in the making. One professional bonding with another. Don't ever forget that, gal. You do your job well and he knows it just as well. Truly heartwarming stuff. Wish I could have been there. This is as good as it gets and despite the thousands of miles, kilometers etc. we are distanced, it's this kind of stuff that keeps us right in there where it's happening for real.

Great work and thanks to you and all the folks who have the expertise to provide to us these classic joys which are there for our entertainment just by a click.

wonderful to read about you getting the well deserved shout out, bravo

didnt see a pic of sheilagh, i will have to click thru em all again, with pleasure

it was nice to hear that GL dug the cullen auto harp and harmony arrangement of SFAWN from last year...that treatment has occupied my mind off and on throughout this past year, especially the staggered harmonies and the chant of the fiddle coming and going

so good to hear the large void left by anne lindsay was filled ...i wish she was actually part of the GL orchestra...what tasteful, additional hues or instrumentation (and harmony!!!) she could add to the Lightfoot live painting

one note: i believe there has been a keyboard up there each year, no

my loss for missing out on another year...i still have the warmth from that inaugural 2003 show (when we werent at all certain if Gord had a future at all) running through me and your thorough and passionate reviews always take it up another degree or three

i didnt know this years roster so well so thanks for the links as always!

when did mad become madison, why is the sky blue, i am full of questions

THAT pic of DavidN + Gord is really a dandy...great visages, a pro snap

hey, i see David has some of his old blog reports posted at his website

now, get that pic of you+GL enlarged and up on your wall of Char+Gord classics

great read, great night, am sure the liquor tasted good, ok, wine.. cheers, jim

ps) River of Light, Bells of the Evening, Yarmouth Castle...i just love to hear about these fresh adds...hey, I hope your shoe cam audio captured your soothing vocals during TIYS

Default Re: Lightfoot Celebration at Hugh's Room - night one-Jan.22-10

sorry - no pic of Sheilagh..
the last few years there has been a keyboard played by David Matheson..this year he played piano. It was just recently donated to Hugh's.
Mad Violet changed their name to Madison Violet a few years ago.
David put up some of his posts regarding the shows of days gone by..great reads..He's a magical wordsmith.
It was a magical weekend..
