Last Thursday, we arrived in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, for the main event – the 28th annual Hank Snow Tribute! This is a big deal around here – Hank Snow’s home town – and we were honored to be the headline performers this year.
From the left, Will Carter, Rob McNurlin, me, Tom Kirk, Robert Shafer and Russ Hicks. We did a two-hour show (with an intermission) featuring Rob and me singing some Hank Williams, some Hank Snow, and a few originals. We performed for about 1,000 listeners seated comfortably in a hockey rink. The sound man was set up in the penalty box – you can’t make this stuff up!
A highlight of the evening was an instrumental called “Honey Fingers,” showcasing the talents of our dynamic duo of Robert and Russ. Overall it was a great night! Standing ovation, encore, smiles and hugs. I think I like Nova Scotia!
