Music legends Kris Kristofferson and Gordon Lightfoot joined Ronnie “The Hawk” Hawkins at Hawkstone Manor, Hawkins’ home on Stoney Lake in the Kawarthas, for a no-longer-secret recording session of Kristofferson’s classic tune “Me and Bobby McGee”.

Other musicians — including some well-known local performers — were also there, including Robin Hawkins (Ronnie’s son), Leah Hawkins (Ronnie’s daughter), Ryan and Sam Weber (The Weber Brothers), James McKenty (The Spades), Steve Kendry (The Spoons), Melissa Payne, Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo), Theresa Mackenzie, Buzz Thompson, as well as members of The Sadies according to reports on social media.

Local chef Eric Mckibbon cooked for the musicians according to his Facebook post:

“What a pleasure to cook for Kris Kristofferson, Gordon Lightfoot, and the Hawk on Stony Lake with dinner music by members of Blue Rodeo, The Sadies, the Spades, and the lovely Melissa Ann Payne,” he writes.

Ronnie’s daughter Leah posted some photos and Melissa Payne posted a brief video on Instagram from the two-day recording session at Hawkstone Studios (see below).
