Oh, Jesse

Thanks to my wonderful friend, Amy Mangan, I will be opening for one of my all-time favourites,
Jesse Winchester, Saturday, April 6 at Hugh’s Room.
Jesse Winchester is one of North America’s finest songwriters ever, his songs beaming with charm and wit.  His music is laced with the rich, musical heritage of his Louisiana homeland, but his most celebrated work came from his time in Montreal.  Befriending The Band in the late ‘60s led to his first album being produced by Robbie Robertson, as well as musical accompaniment by The Band.  This was only the start to his outstanding career, which is going stronger than ever.
If you haven’t yet granted yourself the pleasure of experiencing Jesse Winchester at one of his annual springtime stops at Hugh’s Room, you really owe it to yourself.
Hugh’s Room is one heck of great venue and it definitely is in great hands.
