THE WAY WE FEEL was co-founded by singer songwriters Aengus Finnan and Jory Nash, who wanted to draw attention to the vast catalogue of one of Canada's greatest songwriters, Gordon Lightfoot. The goal was to celebrate Lightfoot's work AND feature a revolving mix of contemporary Canadian roots, folk, jazz, blues artists.First performed in 2003, this once-annual celebration called Toronto’s Hugh’s Room home every January for 14 years for multi-night sold out shows . The show has also toured Ontario 5 times (in 2005, 2006, 2013, 2017 & 2022) playing SRO-concerts in various soft seat theatres across the province.
Over the years the concert has featured more than 100 different Canadian artists, among them multiple Juno, ECMA, WCMA, Maple Blues and CFMA-award winners all bringing their unique musical vision to dozens of classic Lightfoot songs. Gordon Lightfoot himself has even joined in and performed onstage at a number of the concerts!In 2017 The Way We Feel culminated in a 15th anniversary gala concert at Toronto’s Glenn Gould theatre, as well as a special anniversary series of concerts at Hugh's Room Live in 2019, after the venerable venue reopened its doors. Current producer and performer Jory Nash is excited and honoured to bring THE WAY WE FEEL back to the Hugh's Room and the Rosedale United Church community, to once again celebrate the music of Gordon Lightfoot, in the year of his passing. We dedicate these shows to him, and we remember him always.
This special edition of The Way We Feel will as always feature a stellar line up of artists including: Coco Love Alcorn, Burke Carroll, Lori Cullen, Dala, Rick Fines, Jason Fowler, Kevin Fox, Anne Lindsay, David Matheson, Jory Nash, David Newland, Sarah Slean and David Woodhead.
