He was at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival last summer. He talked at lengyh, in one of the small workshops, about his good friend Jack Layton.

Not at "lengyh", at "length".

well deserved. he is a great performer but a world class luthier. his guiars are wondewrfull. dave wrenn let me play on of his highest end guoitars at the 12th frett years ago, incredible! a friend out west has one of his older guitars--a real treasure.

his plainer modles are still out the 12th frett had an older one for five grand. cheap when you look at the jhand made market now.

i was told bis father was bora laskin, the cheif justice of the supreme court of canada. quite a family

Bora was not his father. Uncle, I believe. Certainly a remarkable family.
