Default THE WAY WE FEEL @ HUGH'S ROOM LIVE-15th and last shows

4 epic nights!!!!!!! Lisa and I attended with Ron Jones 3 of 4 and with he and his wife and niece.. ...
wow.. Gordon and Kim were there for 3 of them.
videos and reports/pics to come.

Quick report - It was a lot of fun sharing this years shows with Ron and a bonus was spending the days with him and his wife at their home/b&b as they offered their home to Lisa and I to crash after each epic night at Hugh's. These last 4 nights were hands down 4 of the best in all 15 years. WOW. The room was sold out each night and Gordon and Kim were there 3 of the 4 nights..Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Meredith was to perform on Saturday and Sunday but was there for Sunday only. She's developed into such a talented and intriguing performer.

There were many breath taking moments with all the artists but as usual it was the pinnacle when Gordon got onstage with The Good Brothers to sing Alberta Bound and then with the whole ensemble to sing Rich Man's Spiritual. I've got a lot of videos from all 4 nights so enjoy!

It was nice on the first night to stop by Gordon's table to say hi and have him put his hand on mine and say, "Sit down Char, sit down".. Lisa was with me and she and I spent 10-15 minutes chatting with Gordon and Kim. He has a new cardigan in lovely red colour and I told him how nice the colour was on him. It was a gift from Kim and she was sporting an awesome faux fur coat from Gordon..

We once again talked about doing another phone Chat with Char so I will have to get onto that asap.

Enjoy the videos and photos - I will do up setlist for each night. Most videos have the artists memories/stories about the tune they are doing so give a listen - some are very poignant, some are funny and all are deeply meaningful for each performer..

Hi there friends.

This event would have to be designated to the "One And Only" category.

After four sold out consecutive nights of "Top Of The Class" entertainment, three of which were attended by "The Man Himself," together with his very sweet and loving wife, Kim, "The Way We Feel" concert series, a title coined by Jory Nash and Angus Finnan, this historical occasion is up there within a class all of it's own.

How could it ever be topped that anyone there could just saunter up beside the musical genius that he is and his adoring wife and ask for a photo to be taken and have it granted no questions asked?
That's what this Hugh's Room event is about. Sort of a "one big family gathering" all wrapped around the music of Gordon Lightfoot.

Charlene and daughter, Lisa were on hand to provide video, etc. for fans unable to attend and they both are currently at work processing all they have accumulated.

Jory Nash, the organizer of this monumental undertaking is a man who wears many hats.
My one hat goes off to to him but if I wore as many hats as Jory does I would take them all off to a most honourable, well deserving gentleman.

Having delved slightly into this kind of work I fully understand the ingenuity and diligence that goes into putting together such a complex project.

The elevated spiritual high feeling that came from having attended this full series of concerts will certainly ride with me into April when the next "Gordon Lightfoot in Concert" series begins in Mississauga, Ontario at the "Living Arts Centre."

Long Live Lightfoot!
