I will be posting an on-going series of music videos to help keep John’s music alive and promote a prototype live concert celebration of his music by new and established performers to be filmed as a companion film to the documentary.
This rare John Stewart single incorporates pedal steel guitar on the “Cannons in the Rain” album cut. The Kingston Trio and John performed the John Phillips-John Stewart penned song in their many concerts over the decades. If there’s another Stewart song other than “Daydream Believer” someone knows who is not familiar with him, it is likely “Chilly Winds” due to the many folk artists over the years who love the song and continue to perform it. Its universal story of wanderlust, broken hearts and longing for warmer climes guarantees the song a long life. The pedal steel guitar blends beautifully with the harmonica, guitar and strings and adds a nice touch of heartache to the recording. To See/hear “Chilly Winds” click https://youtu.be/67Hr5WVmAw8
