Bill Garrett and Sue Lothrop

Last evening Bill Garrett showed up without his partner, lover, wife, friend, sweetheart and long time companion for their scheduled performance. It had to have been a while that he had performed solo because he said that he was nervous and missed Sue besides him. Sue came down with the musician's nightmare. A cold. That almighty curse whereby you are just too down and out including your voice to sing. Have no fear Sue, you and Bill already have a date to come back.

When I ask the question to myself, what is folk I look at what I have experienced during the 60/70ties. My age period. I look at Dylan, David Essig, Jessie Winchester, Bruce Murdoch, Allan Fraser and the list just goes on.

But somewhere on that list is Bill Garrett. When he began to sing and pick last evening I was taken back to a time that in my opinion was what I consider folk music. This thread is not to start any disagreement on the almighty question of FOLK, so please comment only on the accomplishments of this wonderful contributor to music. Please check out all his accomplishments to date and I am sure there are many more to come.

Have you ever heard of Borealis Records?
Canadian Folk Music Awards?
Check out their web sit.

Meant to say "SOLO" and not "sole".

I heartily agree with your comments, Adrien.Bill, with his consummate guitar picking and clear resonant voice, chose to present a series of songs and music the like of which I have recently not heard. It was a splendid concert of true folk music that enthralled and appealed to many emotions.I was sorry not to see Sue perform but illness did not allow for this.Best wishes to her for a speedy recovery.It was a performance not to be forgotten, and anyone who has the opportunity to see Bill and Sue live should not miss it.

I agree with both those guys! It was wonderful to hear Bill after way too many years. I sure hope I can make the promised event with Sue and Bill. It won't be better, but different. We get great music down there in Ormstown, thanks to Adrien and Danny!!

Was great to see you Friday evening.
I purchased Bill's c/d so I could learn "Quiet Money" by Dave Essig. This is the type of song that you just don't want it to end. Thank you Dave for a great song and thank you Bill for a great rendition of it.

I had a lot of fun with Sue way back... I sat in with her and Brian "Butch" Blane for a couple of gigs, then did a shortlived,but kick-ass country-rock band, a 6 piece as I recall.. Joel Zifkin on fiddle . He did a lot of work with The McGarrigles... cousin Mark Kennedy was on guitar as well, (his of course) but you never know with po' hillbillies... later Sue and Mark got married and had a daughter named Corrina, which also makes her a cousin to me.. sound like Kentucky yet ? Got to meet junior last fall... a lovely young lady now, about Audrey's age..

thanks Buds, good to hear it... nice gig. It'll pay for many a Montreal smoked meat sandwich when he gets back...

He was always easy to get along with and a warped sense of humour.

Wasn't Joe; the fiddler in the film Hank Williams, The Show He Never Gave?

I recall Bill's weekly guitar lessons on Sylvia Tyson's Touch The Earth show.

yeah Jackie was great... I got to hang out with him a few years ago at "Northern Lights Festival Boreal" in Sudbury Ont.
I was amazed at his extensive repertoire and the kindness that he radiated..
a real treasure

Jackie was my guitar hero since I first saw him circa 1960 at the Black Swan in Hamilton. I once drove from Hamilton to Port Hope and back the next day with Jackie riding shotgun; a conversation I'll always treasure.
A few years later my brother met him at a party in Hamilton and I was amazed to learn that, not only did he remember me, he remembered my birthday as well.
The last time I saw Jackie was at his 88th birthday celebration. That was also the last time I saw Willie P. Bennett. I'll miss them both.
