A Songwriter's Ode To Stuart McLean
Reid Jamieson, a singer-songwriter originally from Toronto, has recorded close to a dozen albums, won the grand prize for Folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and, for the past decade, has been a member of CBC’s Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean.
On the news of McLean’s death from cancer yesterday, Jamieson, now based in Vancouver, posted an affectionate song about the man with whom he had spent many hours, days and weeks, in the studio, on the road, and in social circumstances.
The song, originally written three years ago with his wife, Carolyn Victoria Mill, tells the tale of sharing the road and the music, laughter and lasting friendship that started with their first show together in Port Hope ON in January 2005.
