i just watch you on super dave show 2014,21,10 month really cool
Hi Lori: I have been a fan of Rita Chiarelli for many many years and never miss her gigs when she's here at the Dream Cafe in Penticton! Today I heard her on CBC "My Playlist" and she included your FAB song Fire and Gasoline...I went to itunes and bought your Minerva album...just love your voice and your energy...is there any way to get the chords and/or lyrics to your songs? We are NOT pros but we get together with guitars and ukes and sing fun songs...now we'd like to sing YOURS! If you thinking of coming west let me know...perhaps you and Pierre can work it out so that you could play The Dream! Lone Jones
I'm wanting your cd with "promises promises" and would love to have your cd with that song on it - how can I find one?
Ya Lori the show @ the Pearl was awsome...i had asked an old freind about you from back in the days of Dufferin & Wilson..1974-5 Dennis Good is my buddy..he said you where a singer (Folk) he said but you are much more then folk..real funny aswell great to here you sing with-out a mike that was great aswell...see ya soon Ron
Congratulations on all your successes, your intrepidness, creative words/voice/presentation (you had all of these things in school in Downsview...), experiential perceptions (I still have a few of your poems); hell, congrats on all things that make you an exciting, sensual, fun, YOU
Thanks for being so nice to me, I will always remember your kindness

Hi Lori. Saw you for the first time at the Harvest Picnic and you were great! Then i was packing up my things at the cottage up north last weekend and low and behold they were playing "Breaking out of Mommy Jail" on CBC Radio!! What a way to wrap up the weekend! Great stuff. Hope to see you again soon.
I've loved you for a long time, you can wipe the floor with me...please! When is your next gig?
Love your work on Forever Knight!! Your incredible voice & talent really set the tone for the series. Love your dark & brooding Dark Side of the Glass & Fan Kill made Rebecca a legend but it should have been you! Thanks for sharing your gift!
Hi Lori I just became aware of your music. I'm hoping to get out to The Dakota to hear you this week. Well I just thought I'd say hello. That's the risk you take when you let people leave comments.Take care Lori. All the best.
Hey lori, glad to see your still doing the circuit. I don'nt know if you remember me. I used to go with Jill Goldie, back in early 80's. I went and saw you play some gigs in orangeville, Toronto. I came a cross one of your cd's in a used record/cd shop in vancouver about 5 years ago. It was great. hav'nt listened to it for a while white cover with you on it in a baby blue colour. I will look for it. and listen to it again. Do you have any dates coming up for bc? Love to hear from you. Boy I sure miss the T.O. night life. Been in bc since 93. chat soon David Kennedy
your music is great ..
I love the "Spirit and Artistry" of You Lori! Thank You!

Hey Lori... Shucks I dont know how often you read this guest book of yours... but thanks for the CD...and thank you for playing at my grandparents 50 anniversary last night... I'm now slightly obsessed with that song of yours "Simcoe" You rock
Hello Lori, I have been searching for a song I believe you wrote about Handsome Ned. Rebel Angel? Can you please tell me how I can get an MP3 of that? I would alos like the tabs so I can learn it. Thanks Bill Pollock
"Simcoe", one of the finest songs I have ever heard. what an awe inspiring, heartbreaking beautiful voice.............
Happened to catch Melissa McClelland in Burk's Falls this last Saturday and found myself thinking of you. I suppose you've met. Hope all is well in Hamilton as it is in Huntsville. PS belated congrats on your song writing award in Hamilton!
Lori, it was my great pleasure to meet you and see you perform at the Canterbury Folk Festival last weekend. Thanks for signing 'The Book of Minerva' for me. The CD blows me away. Great sound and storytelling! Hope to hear and see more of you soon on the road of life....take er easy...gjm from your old town the 'SHWA'.
Hi Lori We have never met and I could not make it to Sunderland recently (living here in Timmins)but my cousin Pam who was there, today sent me the link to your great site. It is a true pleasure to connect with you if even through e-mail and I do hope that you can still connect with others in the "P" family. All the best! Marty
Hi: Lori Thanks for the heads-up on the gig this past weekend but we were at a family reunion in Wainfleet on the good old Feeder Rd. Would love to have seen you and the gang, would have been worth the 6 hr drive. Please say Hi to David, Basil, and Michele. When you coming to play in the north, say Manitoulin Island. They started Manitoulin Country Fest II www.theislandfm.com (local country station)or 1-888-657-1350 So sorry we missed you, like the days of sitting on the sofa and listening to you perform at Readers visiting and chatting between sets Love ya miss ya Bear & Laura
Hi Lori, My cubicle neighbour Lori Dewar (formerly Lori Hughes, formerly Lori Lucas) (aka, your cousin) was just telling me all about you. Great sounding stuff. All the best. Oh ya, Lori says hi. Brian
Hi Lori, Well tonight my husband and I were out for supper. On the TV was the rerun of the show Super Dave Osbourn and you were the feature performer. We took note of your name to see if you were still performing and found this website. Just wanted to tell you that. Hopefully we can see you perform. Are you ever in the Kitchener-Waterloo area? Cheers! Pam
Lori, we love The Book of Minverva. It has a beautiful sound and the songs are so strong. Keep on recording - don't ever stop! L&L
I'm pretty sure you went to Anthony Road Public School. You have a wonderful voice!
Great Music ! Great site Lori. Glad to have you as a musical friend ! Beautiful things to you Mike Offord
So great to meet you! The whole family was thrilled! Please keep in touch. A posse of Pilkingtons would like to catch a gig! cheers, Pam

Hi Lori, met you and that very fine geetar player David at the London Music Club last night.Enjoyed your show and especially your great vocals and David's slide.The cd is great, especially Simcoe , Mommy Jail and Maria. Next week I am making my annual visit to San Miguel De Allende Mexico, where my daughter Celeste is a school teacher, and my grandaughter Sapphire is the Jewel of central Mexico. Lori, I know you like a good family story, so here is Celeste's, the daughter who just did not listen and did her own thing ( sound familiar Girl?). One day when Celeste was about 4 years old and having a problem with wetting the bed, she came downstairs and Daddy picked her up. I said " Celeste,your Pajamas are a little bit wet"; without any hesitation, Celeste said, " yes Daddy , but they are a little bit dry" For the next 20 years she continued to tell me a little bit of the truth; a song title? Best of luck,If you are out ramblin', I live in Nairn, right next to the pioneer Scottish cemetary, and my neighbours are usually quiet. Landscaper Ted

Hi Lori Just heard you on CBC this afternoon and loved your music. Are you planning any shows in eastern Ontario, Kingston in particular, this year? Thanks. Gayle

Nice site. I'll happily sign your guestbook. :)
You bring me to my knees Lori. I love the record and I love you! LUV President, Lori Yates Fan Club!
Love The site and the tunes. I would not have thought that you would sound like you do. I know that sounds wierd. I realy like the songs i have sampled
The Book of Minerva is loading up from iTunes as I type. Guess that's what I'll be listening to next. Thanks for all the terrific music, Lori (and for filling in for Ned on the Honk Tonk Hardwood Floor Show from time to time). Cheers, David
Hi Lori, Just heard your song "Simcoe" on CBC. It brought back a lot of memories of when I was the farmer's daughter and we boarded tobacco pickers, not in Simcoe, but Waterford. You must be a Norfolk County native, your song rang true! Eve
Hey Lori. I'm listening to Book of Minerva... what a fucking brilliant record! Great songs...your voice just melts me. You've created a timeless piece of art...congrats and thanks! PEACE.
Hey Lori ... heard you on Fuse last Saturday as I was driving into Ottawa ... had to Goggle you and see what you are up to ... so glad you are still active! Oh yes ... congratulations about the childrens ... Later ... Donald
yori, you kicked ass on friday night. you blew everyone away!! and you looked fanfuckingtastic! i hope you saw your "trading card" in the NOW and also the review of simcoe in saturday's star. next stop massey hall? love ros
Just heard the CBC Radio 2 program "Fuse" with Wendy McNeill & David Baxter. Remarkable collaboration. I'm listening to MP3 of "Simcoe" for 3rd or 4th time, picking along (Key of B) with the lead. Beautiful. Thank you.
Lori: I just happened to turn on CBC Radio this afternoon and heard most of the show with you, Wendy and David. Delightful and I'm pleased to be introduced to you and your music. I am a big fan of Rick Danko and I knew that I was going to like "Simco" even before you started playing. Come to Windsor or Detroit for a show sometime! Best Regards. Bruce in Rochester Hills, Michigan
You'd a done ole gunt Leonard proud last night - you got some Montreal, Jewish guilt-ridden man, suffering from a love/hate relationship with Ma, gospel in ya, girl! I am envisioning a blues/gospel CD as your next venture - cause why not cover all the genres not played on popular, i.e. ridiculously banal, radio. Tingles, shivers, tears - it's kinda neat to have a friend who's so fucking talented. Kudos, bravo, and endless accolades - you make we mere mortals humble in your presence.
Lori, Last night at The Cameron House was amazing...it's weird, I've heard you sing a couple of lines of a song while at work, but last night seeing and hearing you, I was blown away. I'm listening to Minerva right now - and I'm keeping Babydoll in mind for a time when I need a good cry...stunning! See you!
Estupendo dúo con Gregg Allman en Brother to Brother de la cinta Next of kin. Deliciosa voz la suya Miss Yates. Felicidades
thank you for being the haunting voice behind the realm of Forever Knight
Lori, thanks for your email from a couple of weeks ago. I have been away "bluegrassing" and not plugged in. I love your latest CD, which I found on CDBaby. All the cuts!! I have it nearly worn out. Of all the female vocalists I have in my collection, from Nora Jones to Laurie Lewis/etc. you are in #2 spot, second only to Emmy Lou Harris, and I may soon move you to #1!! Hope to meet you someday, Lloyd
lori, i can't stop listening to your cd. your voice on some of those tracks makes the little hairs on the back of my neck stand on end...you rock cheers from your psychic tea leaf reader!!
Hi lori remember us Edith,Evelyn and Ingrid from Downsview. Ingrid told us to googel you, all the best!
some things never change / still love ya just kidding / keep on rocking
Hey Lori, I'm not sure if you remember me but I used to live with Stan from the Last Resorts. You were out with me the night I met my current husband Gordon at The Beverly Hotel approx. 25 yrs. ago. We're still together and have 2 sons. If you ever come to Ottawa or the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield I'd love to see you again. You always had an amazing voice and still do. I'm still a big fan. Jeannie
Hey Lori... Lou here Minerva is fucking amazing! I have been playing it a lot on my radio show, plus Ms. Buckshot and I spin it all the time at home and at work. Congrats, you cool chickie! Lou
Screw Georg's veggie analogy - the CD is a filet mignon and lobster dinner...with Marat Safin! Love it, love it, love it - especially "You and Me Maria". Let's get the ninjas together soon.
Loving the new record. As you know country/roots/whatever music is not something I came to on my own. I feel like a child growing up to find hey, those vegetables aren't so bad after all. Thanks for opening my ears.

Hi Lori! It was great to discover your website. I discovered you from "Forever Knight", and was surprised that your roots and branches were in country! That's OK though because I've since discovered "Hey Stella!", "Untogether" and "Breaking Point". Thanks again, especially for lending your voice to "Forever Knight"!
