Jesse Winchester: north, south, song
We had the opportunity to chat with the legendary Jesse Winchester recently in an intimate backstage setting, after a pin-drop performance to a packed house.
Jesse also shared candid and sometimes surprising thoughts on “folk” music, commercialism, and Canada.
Though he was practically the poster child for the American draft dodgers who made their home in Canada during the Vietnam era, Jesse Winchester now makes his home in the U.S. again.
“Me, I want to live with my feet in Dixie
And my head in the cool blue North”
We took Jesse at his word, and made sure he left our chat with a token of the high respect he’s earned here in the cool blue North.
Watch for it!
