black walnut Review: Oliver Schroer's Last Concert on his... (16) Review: Oliver Schroer's Last Concert on his... 06 Jun 08


Last night I was one of the sold-out audience for the much anticipated "Oliver Schroer's Last Concert on his Tour of This Planet!", held at Trinity-St.Paul's Church in downtown Toronto Canada.

Oliver - possibly the most intelligent, creative, prolific, inovative fiddler of our time - is dying of leukemia. He doesn't know if he has days or weeks or months ahead of him here. He does know that there is no more treatment available to him, and that from his hospital bed he will be creating and producing and playing music, as well as continuing to build meaningful relationships with those around him, for as long as time gives him strength.

There are no words big enough to describe last night's concert. Oliver led us through a journey of old and new tunes, sometimes solo, sometimes with musician friends, one with a dancer. The night ended with all of us singing and whistling along on the final song!   

I am interested to know what other Mudcatters were at the concert. Perhaps one of you can add to what I have said, and maybe tell about what drew you to attend.
