It was my pleasure to win a copy of John’s CD “Ole Sweet Dreams” at Orin Smith’s Memorial Jam. I’ve long admired John’s talents and this collection of songs with his daughter’s beautiful celtic tones is a treasure i’ll be enjoying for some time. Produced in Victoria at Oakstone, Dennis Ferbey.
Ron Jenkins has a photo album that he has graciously agreed to let me share with you all. For those of us who grew up at the “Wee Ponderosa” it was always a good time to see the images of our cohort in their younger years as we sat with our guitars around the fireplace sharing old memories and making new ones.
Here is evidence that, yes, Grant McIntosh was once a skinny whip of a lad.
The following were recorded at the Esquimalt Inn in 1989.
The players – Jack Brygidyr (keyboard/vocals), Tom Horsfall (bass), Ray LeRoux (pedal steel/vocals), Marty Murphy (drums), Wayne Peters (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) with guests KD Kuyten and Erin Moriarty
From a Jack to a King Wayne Peters (lead vocals)
Low and Lonely Ray Leroux (lead vocals)
I Fall to Pieces Erin Moriarty (lead vocals)
Someday Soon KD Kuyten (lead vocals)
More to come…
Back in 1986, when Wayne Peters was injured in a motor vehicle incident with some black ice and broke his arms – this motley crew and then some came out to help Homebrew through a week at the Esquimalt Inn.
Back in those days you could actually work 6-7 days a week. Hmmm, good thing we were younger.
Thanks to Lavina for sharing this with us and Doc Jenkins for the photo.
