Thread Name: Hank Snow Festival
Subject: RE: Hank snow Festival
This festival was great right through. If you love "old country" it was the place to be! Two members of Hank's band "The Rainbow Ranch Boys" were there. Roger Carroll (bass guitar) and Kayton Roberts (steel guitar) played backup for any of the performing groups wishing them to. They hardly left the stage all day Saturday.
Johnny White from Massachusetts gave a great yodeling performance. Vic Aalders (Hank's brother-in-law) also played. Joyce Seamone also performed several times and was inducted into the Nova Scotia country music Hall of Fame.
These are only a few that I mention, but there were many others.
