The Sublimities – Webb Sisters & Dominique Boile – Meet At 2012 Ghent Leonard Cohen-Fest

Ongoing readers will be unsurprised to discover that when Dominique Boile met Charley and Hattie Webb in Ghent, he came away with not only an autographed CD but also some outstanding photos.

Dominique also provided the following information in response to my queries:

  • “The beautiful young blonde woman dressed in black is Maarten’s [Maarten Massa’s] wife [Wenche]. She has given many presents to the Webb Sisters.”
  • “In the jar carried by Hattie there is Advocaat met Chocolade, a Ghent specialty.” (Advocaat, according to Wikipedia, is a traditional Dutch rich and creamy liqueur made from eggs, sugar and brandy.)

Also notable, in addition to the talents of the Sisters Webb, is the obnoxiously inappropriate, disruptive shouting from the audience during Leonard Cohen’s introduction to the song. Note that Cohen never falters, hesitates or flinches during the disturbance. One gets the idea that this isn’t Leonard’s first rodeo.
