Thread Name: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Rick, I am remembering the times you got up to Orillia and how much you touched the lives of other musicians here. I am touched to see that some of the fine Canadian musicians who have played for us in past shows in Orillia are also dropping in on this thread...Eve Goldberg, Paul Mills, Curly Boy Stubbs...
The Orillia Folk Society has another show going tonight, featuring Manitoba Hal Brolund, whom I have not seen before. I bet he knows you too.
We'll all be thinking of you tonight as the local "musical friends" in the Orillia area gather to share the music.
p.s. Have been listening for a couple of days to a great CD of Bob Dylan on Cynthia Gooding's radio show in 1962. One of the things I really appreciated, Rick, was your high regard for ol' Bob as a guitar player, writer, and performer of the first quality. It was great discussing Dylan memorabilia with someone who really understood it and got it. When Rick Fielding says someone is a fine guitar player...he IS. No two ways about it.
