Lady Troubadour

DINE and Destinations - - TASTING NOTES -

Liona Boyd, Canada's first lady of the gui­tar, is back liv­ing in Toronto af­ter hav­ing penned a re­veal­ing new au­to­bi­og­ra­phy No Rem­edy for

Love (Dun­durn Press). The book is a unique and fas­ci­nat­ing per­sonal story and a se­quel to her best-sell­ing 1998 me­moir In My Own Key that is also be­ing pub­lished. Boyd de­scribes her de­ci­sion to di­vorce and leave Bev­erly Hills, her roller coaster ride mov­ing around the con­ti­nent, her years liv­ing in Mi­ami, Con­necti­cut and Palm Beach, and her 30 year pen-pal friend­ship with Prince Philip, for whom she per­formed in pri­vate at Wind­sor Cas­tle March, 2017. The five-time Juno award win­ner has si­mul­ta­ne­ously re­leased a new CD of 17 exquisitely pro­duced songs also en­ti­tled No Rem­edy for

Love (Uni­ver­sal Mu­sic). One of our favourites is a heart­felt song she wrote for Gor­don Light­foot, where she is joined by legendary Ron­nie Hawkins. Our ku­dos to this amaz­ing woman who over­came so many hur­dles to pur­sue her mu­sic.
