Default THE WAY WE FEEL -15th anniversary event


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... )
