A last minute addition to the election campaign. I wrote this tune last election cycle. Fortunately for me, my MP Cheryl Gallant has continued her habit of saying and doing questionable things.
Marcus Winchester is the son of Jesse Winchester, famed singer, songwriter, draft dodger. We spoke at an Ottawa diner prior to a tribute concert we are both performing in at North on 29 on Sunday, June 21.
We speak a bit about Marcus’ background in education before focusing on Jesse. Marcus has some unique insights on his Dad’s songwriting process and how we worked on demos of his tunes for other artists while living in a cabin in rural Quebec.
The podcast finishes with a bit of me singing one of my favourite Winchester tunes, “Biloxi”.
I’ve added an article I wrote for out local paper previewing the show. It’s on the “A Showman’s Life” Page.
Sorry, it’s been a bit too long in getting the website re-started. However, I think I’m on track now. First thing I’m working on is a tribute to the music of Jesse Winchester. Then the Arrogant Worms have a tour of Western Canada in March. Then who knows. I’ve got a page up with the poster. I’ll soon have a podcast episode featuring my interview with Jesse’s son Marcus where we discuss Jesse’s life and music. Stay tuned!
