Legendary singer-songwriter Jesse Winchester passed away seven years ago on April 11, 2014. On this episode of Art of the Song we honor his life and his music with a special tribute. Jesse fled to Canada during the Vietnam era to avoid the draft. Unable to find employment, he began honing his craft as a songwriter. According to Jesse, “If I had remained in America, I doubt that I’d ever have written a song or made any records. I just kind of drifted into music.”
