Re: GLENN GOULD PRIZE GALA REPORTS

Arlene - Avalanche by Cowboy Junkies was terribly loud (more technical problems), but I loved the way she sang it. But I admit you had to fight your way past the loudness a bit to find the beauty. I was a little taken aback at John Prine reading the lyrics too. Oh well, the glitches certainly didn't...

Re: GLENN GOULD PRIZE GALA REPORTS

I feel bad now for saying that the music was only 'good.' It was very good. But is was just a little rough, a little too unpolished, a little too unpracticed, compared to some other tribute concerts I've seen. Of course, this is the only one I've seen live in person, so perhaps that makes a differen...

Re: GLENN GOULD PRIZE GALA REPORTS

First - apologies for not meeting up with my friends from the forum at Fran's beforehand. My dinner with an old friend went late, I'm so sorry I missed you. Also - I had trouble logging into the forum from my iPad, so I couldn't write anything up until now - I'm home. As you have no doubt noted from...

Re: GLENN GOULD PRIZE GALA MEETUP

I found a link to the menu:

My husband (John) and I are meeting a friend for dinner before the show, but we could probably meet up with you just before, or probably for a quick drink afterwards.

Looking forward to it.

Re: So, who is thinking about going to Montreal?

I will be in Montreal, with several friends. It should be a good one. I wouldn't be surprised if more dates are added for Montreal too.

Re: CONCERTS IN US/CANADA, TICKET & PRESALE INFO

Mollydog - I'm quite disappointed about ScotiaBank Place too. Kingston is a great idea, I think I will go for that. Plus Montreal of course.

Re: CONCERTS IN US/CANADA, TICKET & PRESALE INFO

Wonderful news, thank you Jarkko, Marie et al. I will definitely do Montreal and Ottawa - although I'm disappointed to see that he will play ScotiaBank Place in Ottawa (a hockey arena in the middle of nowhere). The NAC is a far better venue. But of course I'm thrilled LC is coming back to us us here...

Re: New CBC Music station just for Leonard!

I've been listening frequently as well, it is wonderful. Many good (and a few less good) covers that I haven't heard before, plus some songs performed by LC himself that I rarely hear. Listening to A Thousand Kisses Deep now.

god save the cbc!

I received mine on Friday. Sony could have done worse I suppose, but they certainly could have done better.
