GUEST,Willie-O Review: JP Cormier (27) RE: Review: JP Cormier 19 Nov 02

Saw him a couple of years ago in a small theatre.

Yowsers! My reviewing skills fail me too. I think I did write a review at the time for my newsletter.

I didn't burn my guitar, in fact I went and learned a couple of his songs. Kelly's Mountain being one, that Cape Breton Bluegrass rewrite of El Paso. Always gets a great reaction, it's a wonderfully crafted piece; the guitar break he plays, no one else could touch. I just don't play a break.

Yup, they seemed real nice folks.

The ECMA show you're talking about, Steve, was that the one where he was supposed to play a duet with fiddle wunderkid Richard Woods, whose pickup completely failed him, and it ended up being a guitar solo with big empty spaces? JP played great of course but it was pretty hard to enjoy, you had to feel so bad for young Richard. I'm sure JP felt that way too. One of the toughest breaks I've ever seen on live TV.
