1The combination of people who are at a performance is always new. You'll never get exactly the same mix, at the same time of day, or or with the same energy. So you are working with a brand-new palette every time. The audience will always expect certain things and certain songs, of which I never tire. The cat will always come back. That's the joy of live theatre.
2I think in this day and age, when technology has taken over so much of our entertainment value, that getting together to come to a live performance is becoming more unique than it used to be. In the 1980s, we would go into a community and do three, four, five shows in a couple of days in 2000-seat theaters. Everybody was really excited about coming to that. But the whole thing just sort of changed perspective. Technology didn't do us any good service on that.
3You're only as good as your last gig. There's no comparison to anything: every show has its own energy, its own spirit, its own connectivity. And, from an age point-of-view, I can be in an audience of seniors and be as vibrant and as connected as with a school of two-thousand children.
4The folk singers were protesting against the Establishment, against the Man, against the War. As a collective group you made your voices heard. Nowadays, it's not the same. We've lost that purpose.
