Feature Article: Jesse Winchester

jessewinchesterJesse Winchester was born in America, but chose Canada as his home. We were the better for it. A superb musician with a profoundly soulful voice, he gave us a body of work to last a lifetime and beyond. Here are a few of his most memorable songs:

Biloxi
Twigs and Seeds
Yankee Lady
Brand New Tennessee Waltz
Bowling Green
Mississippi You're on My Mind
Rhumba Man
Tell Me Why You Like Roosevelt
Talk Memphis
That's What Makes You Strong
Sham-A-Ling-Dong-Ding

Despite his enormous talent, Jesse Winchester was a deeply humble man. Quiet About It, the tribute album that James Taylor, Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams and others made of his work, was aptly named.

Losing a fine songwriter is a lot like losing a friend. And Jesse Winchester is one who'll be greatly missed.

Jesse Winchester, born Bossier City, Louisiana May 17, 1944, died Montreal, Quebec April 6, 2014.
