Daniel Lanois Concert

Daniel Lanois was a delight in concert here on Saturday night.

He played tunes off all four of his albums, especially Belladonna [purr], and in his quiet, humble way prefaced each tune with it's history or purpose.

As you'd expect, Lanois had two other musicians with him although I was too transported to remember their names. One on drums and one on piano and guitar. They were great. He was great. Played for 2+ hours with two encores and sporting a new guitar bought in Vancouver. All three stretched the boundaries of their instruments and demonstrated the vast difference between REAL musicians and the pop crap-heads that get to flood the airwaves by their cracker-jack management. A nice breather.

Two small regrets: audience members wandering in and out like it was a cocktail party instead of a chance to absorb supremely talented musicians; and he didn't play Death Of A Train, my all time favourite.
He did do The Collection of Marie Claire which was as disturbingly beautiful live as it is on the album.

Daniel Lanois paints vivid pictures with his music and lyrics: pictures of this country and our culture.
He also stands as a fine example of Canada: talented, humble, dedicated and connected to heritage.
