I had a dream. I gave it a name…

September 20, 2016

Here we are, five days from the end of the campaign.

What am I doing trying to get money to do a Sam Larkin song?

It’s a labour of love you see. I, like a lot of people, was an admirer of Sam. I admired his songs, his craftsmanship, his passion, and the many kindnesses he showed to everyone who showed up at Fat Alberts across the years.

I particularly noticed the magic ‘Mirabeau Bridge’ worked on an audience. If you went to Fat Alberts in the 80s you heard it every week, sometimes two or three times.

And the chorus exerted a special magic on people hearing it for the first time. If you are a Sam Larkin lover, would you do me a favour? Would you go to the crowdfunding page, read the description. Get a feel for what we are trying to do.

There are a couple of little gifts there, including an interview of Sam by Murray McLaughlan, where Sam pulls Murray’s chain with great hilarity.

See if you can see your way to picking a perk and laying a few dollars down. In order to take Mirabeau Bridge to where we want it to go, we need the video of “the ones who love the night” dancing in the light in Paris. Well that’s the dream. It will require a few more

people to step up and plunk down some dollars, as many wonderful people have done already.

Keep the dream alive. Go to: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-make-mirabeau-bridge-a-worldwide-hit-music-toronto/x/14438286#/

Do what you can and thank you.
