The Way We Feel Tour:
A Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot
Aengus Finnan, Jory Nash & Terry Tufts

Although thoroughly unique performers, Aengus Finnan, Jory Nash and Terry Tufts have important similarities. All have been profoundly touched and influenced by the music of Gordon Lightfoot. Between the three of them, they have won the prestigious ÒSongs From the Heart award (sponsored by the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals) four years in a row. Terry, the only two-time winner, was 1998 and 2001; Aengus took the honours in 1999 and Jory won in 2000. All were integrally involved in the wildly successful series of Canadian concerts paying tribute to Lightfoot. Jory and Aengus were the producers for the first three concerts in 2003 with Terry donating his talents on the stage. Building on those sold-out shows, in 2004, they presented five SRO concerts in Toronto and Ottawa. Aengus, Jory and Terry are included in the Beautiful CD, the first-ever Lightfoot tribute album, which was released nationally across North America by Borealis Records and Northern Blues Music. This talented trio presents a musical evening where they interweave a collection of Lightfoot's most beloved songs with their own original tunes inspired by Lightfoot's music. It is both a tribute to one of Canada's most revered singer/songwriters and a showcase of talent from across the border. What counts is Lightfoot's instinct for narrative, his grasp of nature's grandeur and his sheer musicality. ~ Patrick Langston, The Ottawa Citizen
