TRIBUTE: Jesse Winchester

Legendary singer/songwriter Jesse Winchester passed away on Sunday, April 6, 2014 after battling cancer of the esophagus since 2011.

Many way not know Jesse’s name but you have heard artists perform his song. I know of Jesse through being a Jimmy Buffett fan. Jimmy has been singing Jesse’s song throughout his career and in honor of Mr Winchester’s passing, we’d like to pay tribute to him by sharing some of our favorite songs that he has written.
