Tomorrow will be the one year anniversary of the death of my friend Cliff Doerksen. He was someone I not only loved but respected, admired, and was profoundly influenced by. There aren't many of those in a life. Not mine, anyway. As well as being a singular guy, he was a stellar friend.
Here again is the cover of "Goin' Away Party" that my husband David P. Smith recorded in memory of and in tribute to Clifford. Playing with him are Rachelle Reath, Eric Gallipo, and Calvin Dick; filmed and edited by Brad Johnson:
