Default Re: CRT children's book

It was a wonderful event! Gordon did not show up by the time I left around 6:40..he did have a lovely video message for the artist tho. Jory sang CRT and it was fabulous.
My camera played tricks with me so there may not be any video to show..I'm looking into it..I am tres p.o'd!
I met the artist, a very nice man who gave a very heartwrming, emotional speech. I got the book autographed by him and Jory and will get Gordon to sign it tomorrow night in Buffalo.
CBC Radio 2 will have audio tomorrow I believe. (they played the interview and the b&w CBC produced video from 67 of Lightfoot performing the tune with the navvies working around him. It was about 10 minutes long I think!)
There were "Last Spike" cocktails and wine and trays of finger foods..it was all quite nice!
Aengus Finnan showed up! Lovely to see him again!
My fave piece was of the train billowing smoke into the shape of Canada.
Check out Radio 2 on Friday for audio - I'm not sure what they will have online from the event..
I'll be shuffling off to Buffalo early in the morn but will check in before I leave...
