Robert Priest Birthday Bop in a Wayside Cul De Sac
On July 10th, in a cul de sac on Hertle Avenue in Toronto, with a gathering of friends and neighbours, Toronto singer / poet Robert Priest chose a glorious day to be born seventy years ago. A video (above) with unfortunately wretched sound recording and some photos remains as a souvenir of the liveliness and loveliness of a day of community love. In attendance were songwriters Lynn Harrison and Steve Paul Simms, as well as Jillian Harris, vocalist for The O'Pears and Dwayne Gretzky.
Bob Cohen, Robert Priest and David Hines
Thirsty ears in a city starved for live music.
Lynn Harrison and David. Lynn will be doing a performance in the same space on Saturday 7 August.
Jill Harris (center) out for the show with her Mum and Dad.
Robert spent the intermission reading a half dozen of his poems, including the intense Ali Wouldn't Fight, and a fantasy meeting between Will Shakespeare and Chris Marlowe.
