Subject: RE: Gordon Bok - Seattle - March 5
I attended Gordon's concert in Rockland, ME, on Oct. 29th last year, & got a chance to talk with him too. One of the nicest guys I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, as well as a brilliant singer and musician. Sorry you caught him on a bad night, Cuilionn.
That evening in Rockland had a wonderfully warm, friendly atmosphere. Everybody sang along so well in the choruses. Gordon didn't ask them to, but he seemed very pleased with it.
I later learned that both Kendall Morse and Nikos Apollonio were in the audience. Damn! I'd like to have said hello to them, too, and thanked them for their music. (And funny comments on Mudcat, Kendall!) I suppose I won't get another chance to see them, I traveled a long way to that concert - from Stockholm, Sweden, via Iceland and Boston.
Was it worth it? Absolutely! Every cramped hour in Icelandair's economy class and in my friends' car from MA.
