Colum­nist’s cri­tique off the mark

Cape Breton Post - - NEWS -

Colum­nist Dan Mac­Don­ald's com­ments on Ron Hynes' per­for­mance at Went­worth Park ('Stan Rogers Fes­ti­val rises again,' July 17, Cape Bre­ton Post) were off the mark.

Hynes' speech was cer­tainly not "slurred and dif­fi­cult to fol­low," and the slight rasp left in his voice by ill­ness added a new layer of emo­tion to his in­ter­pre­ta­tion of songs such as "Sonny's Dream."

It would be our loss if he did back away.

My thanks to the or­ga­niz­ers of Makin' Waves for bring­ing an artist of this cal­i­bre to town. Cather­ine Camp­bell Syd­ney
