Watch Michael Hollett in conversation with Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo) Travis Good (The Sadies) and actor Gordon Pinsent.
For years now, Canadian acting icon Gordon Pinsent has been writing poetry. By mutual acquaintance, he was introduced to Travis Good of The Sadies to whom he read and then subsequently gave the poems with thoughts that they might be put to music. Travis called Greg Keelor and the two of them decided to take a crack at writing the music together.
Incredibly, the first night they got together they wrote four songs - and liked them all.
The three brought the poetry and music to NOW Talks on Thursday, April 12, at The Drake Underground.
