Re: Montreal tribute: media coverage, photos & YouTube links

FYI: I saw a tweet tonight which complimented Rex Sexsmith's version of Suzanne during the PBS broadcast of the Tower of Song tribute concert. The two hour telecast on CBC a few months back did not include Rex Sexsmith. So it's possible this one-hour version has some different material.
