Bonnie Dobson and The Blinkin’ Buzzards
with special guest
Canadian folk legend Bonnie joins the Buzzards’ festive party as we bring down the curtain on a great 2018.
For Bonnie it has been quite a year, too – her much-covered classic song Morning Dew was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, an honour bestowed on her at the Mariposa, Ontario, Folk Festival by the great Gordon Lightfoot.
Bonnie sang the song at Mariposa in 1961 as she was emerging along with Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Mary Travers and Maria Muldaur as “one of the new girls to watch.”
Morning Dew, a vision of Armageddon, which was her very first composition, has since been covered by everyone from The Grateful Dead, Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart to Robert Plant, who sang it with her at the Royal Festival Hall a while back and described it as a “spectacular piece of music.”
Her voice still rings as beautifully as it did when she first graced the folk clubs of Greenwich Village in the early 60s alongside newcomers Bob Dylan and Simon and Garfunkel.
The house band will play an extended set tonight and will be joined as always by honorary Buzzard Merlin Wildman.
