Cashbox Canada Jesse Winchester April 18.jpg

Submitted by Don Graham

Even when you know an illness has someone in its grip and the outcome is inevitable, when the end finally arrives it’s hard to accept.  Jesse Winchester, suffering a relapse of his esophageal  cancer, has passed away.  Jesse had been battling his cancer since 2011 but was well enough to perform in 2012 and we were fortunate enough to catch one his shows at Hugh’s Room in Toronto.  Here is an excerpt of the review of that show.
