Default THE WAY WE FEEL -15th anniversary event

VIDEOS - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...-j0IDG6A_NeUAd

I attended the 15th annual THE WAY WE FEEL celebration of Gordon Lightfoot at the Glenn Gould Theatre in the CBC building in Toronto on Friday Oct.6,2017.

(the 4 nights in January were postponed due to financial issues at the Hugh's Room venue)

The event was paired with John McDermott's foundation - McDermott House.

The venue was sold out and the evening was superb! It was a different vibe than at Hugh's but the audience was enthusiastic even without food and drink!!

It was also a special evening for Gordon besides the evening of music.

He was awarded with the GOLD medal from The Royal Canadian Geographic Society. (see videos - 3 of them to see the presentation and Gordon then singing IYCRMM)

The emcee of the shows, David Newland was named a Fellow of the Society in November 2015 along with James Keelaghan. (I think he may have been the one to nominate Gordon... )

It's the "all talented JJ" at work here sharing his skills and selectively highlighting the brilliant Lori Cullen exposing her her subtle and gifted vocal skills to bring out the utmost in one of Gordon's all well crafted songs.
This was one really down to earth concert and the surprise appearance of Gord's grandaughter indicates clearly that the musical tentacles of the Lightfoot Family are spreading and setting in their roots.

Thanks Char for posting this so that those of us who don't have a chance to go still get to see this amazing show! Looks like a great time was had by all & I'm so glad they were able to continue doing this even if the venue changed!
