Thread Name: Origins: Northwest Passage (Stan Rogers)
Subject: RE: I will take the Northwest Passage!
I'll never forget seeing Stan in concert in Philadelphia in 1980. It was part of a summer folk music series, and the stage was on the deck of the barque Gazela Primeiro, which was permanently moored at the (then) new waterfront park. At one point he looked around him and said, "This is a beautiful ship, and by God, Philadelphia, you're lucky to have her!" We all were lucky to have him, too, for all too brief a time.
