Van Dyke Parks in Canada

At a Vancouver tribute to the Mississippi Sheiks:

In a concert full of big names, if one was forced to choose a standout performer at the tribute, it would have to be Van Dyke Parks. Playing in Canada for the first time, this veteran producer and keyboard player appeared to be having the time of his life — despite breathlessly confessing “I’m too old for this” — as he continued to appear on stage supporting other artists by laying down weird chords on his accordion or joyously splintering the melody on piano.
