Robert Priest Birthday Bop in a Wayside Cul De Sac

Click here to view a souvenir of the Robert Priest Birthday Concert

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.
