Gordon Lightfoot / Neil Young: One Great Canadian Icon Fills
I think it would be an affront to Lightfoot if anyone asked for a refund at this point. Who would have the gall?
Hey, I would have paid more to see him [laughs]. But we've got Martha Wainwright coming in as well. She's an old friend. I knew her mother. There is a family aspect to this festival, whether it's the crowd or whether it's the musical family. That's still intact. We feel good about what we're doing, and we're rolling up our sleeves to make this a special day.
Speaking of family, is Neil's wife Pegi Young and her band still playing as planned?
Oh, yes. She's playing earlier in the afternoon. We're looking forward to having her. And maybe she knows something that we don't. Who knows?
