Where you been? He is performing all over and doing great. Can't wait for his new c/d. It should be ready fairly soon. Check his web site.

He use to play around western NY and Toronto, but I have not seen him lately, that is why I asked. Use to come to the Buffalo Area about every other year or so

"Sonny's Dream" is a really great Ron Hynes song. It seems no matter who sings it, it always sounds terrific.

If you like perfection try and find Sonny's Dream by Hayley Westenra. There was a clip of her doing it on her web site but I don't see it there anymore. Maybe on You Tube. Worth the search or purchase.

As much as I like Sonny's Dream, my favorite Ron Hynes song is Atlantic Blue, his tribute to the Ocean Ranger. I was much surprised to find that we don't have it, so rather than losing it in this thread, I think I will start one of its own.

Atlantic Blue
Ron Hynes

What colour is a heartache from a love lost at sea
What Shade of memory never fades but lingers to eternity
How dark is the light of day that sleepless eyes of mine survey
Is that you Atlantic Blue? My heart is as cold as you

How is one heart chosen to never lie at peace
How many moments remain is there not oneof sweet release
And who's the stranger at my door to haunt my dreams forever more
Is that you Atlantic Blue? My heart is as cold as you. as you

I lie awake in the morning as the waves wash on the sand
I hold my hurt at bay I hold the lives of his children in my hands And who's Plea will receive no answer who's cry is lost upon the wind
Who's the voice so familiar whispers my name as the night comes in And who's wish never fails to to find my vacant heart at valentines Is that you Atlantic Blue?
My heart is as cold
My heart is as cold
My heart is as cold as you.

Ron is a master songwriter and performer. You can learn a whole lot from him, Sonny's Dream is just the bare beginning. He has a genius for conveying emotion by matching lyrics to passing chords that rivals the best work of Lennon-McCartney. And I've seen him regain control of a noisy Cape Breton pub with an a capella "Bonnie Portmore"--not many could match it.

He got himself straightened out--very publicly--a couple of years ago, will tell you "cocaine is a bullshit drug", and will be with us for many years to come. Thanks be.

In our band The Skirmish, we've been doing "St John's Waltz".
Just for the pure pleasure of the flow of it. We need more waltzes like that.

Hayley Westenra has a great voice but she sings it too slow. I'll stick with Hynes as the benchmark.

I met a man a few years back who gave me hell because I bought a moose burger from a stand that was not his. "Why didn't you buy it here at this stand. I provide the meat here ". I apologized and then realized that I was speaking to Ron Hynes. He followed up by saying " You main landers will believe anything". Well he got me good, but not to far off the coast of Newfoundland is an other Island and we can also strike back. So this SPUD from Prince Edward Island got Ron back when he came up and played at a festival I was involved with.
Ron's handle is "A Man of a Thousand Songs". What a great person and a Canadian treasure. and Lynn, Ron's marketing and media relations agent is very special as well.

Love you both
Adrien

Between Newfoundland and PEI Cape Breton must be the meat in the sandwich. Three adjacent islands with deep musical heritage and I love them all! Ron is great and Sonny's Dream is a classic!

A little up date. Here is a cut and paste message from Ron's web site;   A feature length documentary about the legendary singer-songwriter Ron Hynes.    Directed by William D. MacGillivray. A Picture Plant / Get Set Films production.
Watch for it in the fall of 2010.

I have seen it and it is very well done and powerful.

When I could sing I did it in "D" on the third fret. Probably completely wrong but it worked for me.

Beer, bring the cd with you next time you stop by and we'll do the chords for Anthony. Or bring your guitar and sing it.

Beer's fulla beans about 'when he could sing'. He still can.
