black walnut Review: Oliver Schroer's Last Concert on his... (16) RE: Review: Oliver Schroer's Last Concert on his... 11 Jun 08


The link that was posted to the CBC podcast of the 'Oliver Tribute Concert' was NOT the same one I am referring to here. The tribute concerts (2 nights in a row) took place several weeks ago. Oliver did play at the tribute concerts but mostly they were comprised of OTHER performers playing Oliver's music. The Tribute concert was fantastic and the CBC condensed version, with interviews of friends interspersed throughout, is definitely worth a listen.

That said, "Oliver Schroer's Last Concert on his Tour of This Planet" was a different concert altogether and in a different venue, too - and it took place just last week - June 5. This concert was recorded and filmed and parts of it will be, I'm told, included in an upcoming documentary of Oliver's journey with leukemia.

(Oh and yes Jamie RT is a wonderful fiddler. We are hosting her and Andy Hillhouse at our place for a house concert in the fall. We first heard Jamie when she opened for James Keeleghan at Hugh's Room last year and were blown away. She is not an Oliver clone - but was influenced by him to be sure.).

~b.w.
