The Songs of Nick Drake tour comes to Quebec
His records sold dismally while he lived. But since Nick Drake's untimely death almost 40 years ago, this British singer-songwriter has become a cultural icon. His words and music are said to have influenced everyone from REM to Brad Pitt. They certainly influenced Toronto's Luke Jackson, who is touring with a string quintet, along with alt country's Oh Susanna, and Kevin Kane of Grapes of Wrath. Jacquie talked to Luke Jackson about this weekend's concerts in Sherbrooke and Quebec City and the Quebec artists who will be part of this tribute.
