Thread Name: Hank Snow Festival
Subject: RE: Hank snow Festival
I may have told this story before but in case there are folks on this new thread who haven't heard it, here goes: There is this young chap who lives a few miles from me by the name of Cecil Gibbons. Now Cecil back when the war broke out (No.2 that is.)was touring the maritimes with his band and was scheduled to play in Halifax at the hockey rink. The Halifax Form I believe it was called. Well Celil came down with a terrible cold and had to cancel. A young and up coming no name country singer took his place.
Now Cecil still plays darts and can easily drink me under the table. Topical tom knows this gentleman as well. Cecil is still playing and singing at every party he can go to and plays in all the hospital, nursing homes, senior citizen homes and our Veteran Hospital on the Island of Montreal.
