2.   Tex Konig: Di Grine Kuzine (The Greenhorn Cousin)
(A Schwartz / J Leiserowitz / H Prizant)
Live on the Great North Wind, 1991

b Brooklyn NY / d Toronto July 3, 1999

The first time I met him was at Dyan Myers apartment; he answered the door in an undershirt holding a frying pan dripping of suds. The last time I spoke to him he called me and said: "Boobala, did you hear that…" so and so had died. I did three programs with him, discussing the voice of Ken Nordine, his time in Greenwich Village in New York, befriending Bob Dylan and talking about folk songs. He moved up to Montreal in the late 1960s and eventually headed down to Toronto where he lived out the rest of his life. I really do miss Tex Konig.

3.   Jamie Snider & Brian Taheny: When First I Came to Caledonia
(from the collection of Amby Thomas)
Live on the Great North Wind, 1991
Toronto / Sligo Ireland
Jamie Snider: fiddle, lead vocal
Brian Taheny: guitar

Jamie Snider, born in the Ottawa Valley, first popped onto the scene in Newfoundland with his celtic rock band Red Isand. He was later offered a position in The Wonderful Grand Band before moving back to Ontario and joining Tip Splinter in Toronto. That’s where he ran into Irish guitarist, Brian Taheny.

4.   Brydon: It’s The Smuggler’s Life For Me
Live on the Great North Wind, Jan 1992 *
Brantford ON

I’ve got this show recorded on a cassette somewhere, but otherwise, I don’t have any idea who these guys were. Other than the fact that they came in from Brantford, were a duo and one of them was Don McGeough. That’s all I remember.

5.   Dick Nolan: No More Little Boats No More
(Roy Payne)
Live on Great North Wind, Feb 1992
Toronto / Corner Brook NL

Richard Francis Nolan b. Corner Brook NL Feb 4, 1939 / d. Dec 13, 2005 Carbonear NL (66)

Dick Nolan was the first real country and western star from Newfoundland. He claimed that this was the first and only time that he'd been featured on a radio program for a whole hour and loved being here. Known mostly for his song "Aunt Martha's Sheep" which made everybody but Dick, a lot of money. He started recording back in the early 1960s after moving to Toronto to start up his career. Having Dick Nolan on the program was a blast and one blast leads to another.

6.   Geoff Butler: Newfoundland Jigs Set 
Live on Great North Wind, 1992
Brandon MB
Geoff Butler: accordion

An original member of Newfoundland’s Figgy Duff, accordion player Geoff Butler was living out in Brandon MB, playing with a rock band called the Dust Poets.

(Roy Payne)
Live on Great North Wind, March 16, 1992
Trout River NL
Roy Payne: guitar, vocals

Roy Absalom Payne b. April 3, 1939 - Trout River,  Newfoundland

"Hey, you just had my buddy Dick Nolan on your radio program. Any chance I could get on?" That was a phone call I received from one of Canada's best singer-songwriters, Roy Payne. Thing is, you never know what you're gonna get with Roy. This show could have been a disaster but is wasn't. It was great. There's a thin line in there somewhere. Stevedore Steve Foote described Roy Payne like this: "A rusty pipe coming out of a rock, pouring the sweetest spring water." He just wrote Grandpas and Kids and this was his first public performance of it.

8.   Larry Chaddok & Rick Fielding: Growling Old Man & Woman
Live on Great North Wind, 1992
Larry Chaddok: harmonica
Rick Fielding: guitar

Larry was an old timer that I met at the Bolton Fiddle Club. Rick Fielding was in extra early and back up Larry with the guitar. Then they made me do it! Steve, play Turkey in the Straw, so I did it. Barely.

9.   Steve Fruitman: Turkey In the Straw
Live on Great North Wind, 1992

10. Michal Hasek & Steve Fruitman: Blues Jam

A little musical interlude of blues, jamming between Michal Hasek and me, courtesy of dj Hawkes.

11. Margaret Christl & Michael Johnston: Jock O’ Hazeldene
Live on Great North Wind, 1992
Margaret Christl: vocals
Michael Johnson: guitar

Margaret had an impressive vocal range which made it very difficult for me to get good sound. Her highs were really loud and could then go down and sound as soft as a dandelion. After moving to Canada from the UK in the 1960s, Margaret hooked up with the Friends of the Fiddler’s Green folk club which opened the door to having some kind of folk music career. I haven’t heard from her in a few years but she is mother to Toronto rockabilly artist Alistair Christl. I had them both on Back To The Sugar Camp Nov 6, 2013.

12. Jim Ediger: Pleasant Birthday set
(Jim Ediger)
Tokyo Japan
Live on Great North Wind, 1992
Jim Ediger: fiddle

I met Jim Ediger through Peter Jellard. He was playing in the Andrew Cash Band at the time. Eventually he became a Cajun Rambler and I got to play with him for a few years. Having been born in Japan, he always wanted to go back and live there which he did do in 1995.

13. Walter Ostanek: Polka
Live on Great North Wind, 1992
St. Catherines ON
Walter Ostanek: accordion

20 April 1935 Duparquet, Quebec, Canada

He's a 3x Grammy Award winning artist (but has never won a Juno) and was crowned Canada's Polka King by none other than Frankie Yankovic, America’s Polka King. To celebrate 35 years in the music business he rented a bar in Kitchener, had over 3,000 people there, mostly bussed in from polka cities: Cleveland, Milwaukee, Chicago, Cincinnati etc., bus loads of 'em. Miron Florin (from the Lawrence Welk Show) was there; Frankie was there. He drove all the way with his accordion from St. Catherines to appear on my program.

14. David Stone: Herring & Potatoes
(David Stone)
Toronto / Cape Breton
Live on Great North Wind, 1992
Jamie Snider: fiddle
David Stone: guitar, vocals

I met David Stone at Ossie’s Country Music Store on the Danforth and found out that he had tried to be a radio dj but sounded too much like an East Coaster and couldn’t find a job. So we got him to do his own East Coast show coz he did sound like an East Coaster. He called it The Old Atlantic Lighthouse which he changed to Atlantic Ceilidh. But David was also a decent singer/songwriter in the Stan Rogers vein. He moved back to Halifax where he currently lives.

15. Glen Reid & Ron Jones: My Green Valleys
(Glen Reid)
Live on Great North Wind, 1992
Burk’s Falls / Scarborough ON
Glen Reid: guitar, lead vocal
Ron Jones: guitar, bg vocal

I had Glen Reid’s first solo album called Hard Rock Miner which contained the song My Green Valleys. Glen was out of the music business for well over a decade when Rick Fielding and I kind of eased him back into it. At first he played with Ron Jones before going solo again. He makes fine guitars and mandolins and has recorded three CDs.

Wingham, ON
Earl Heywood: guitar, vocal

Earl Carlyle Heywood b near Exeter ON 12 Mar 1917 / d Brussels ON 17 Sep 2006)
Martha Heywood b. 1924 / d. Lucknow ON October 17, 2021 (97)

I had Earl on a few times. Once to deal with the Black Donnelley’s story, another time about the CKNX Saturday Night Barndance radio show, and another time with Martha in which Rick Fielding and Oliver Schroer help us out musically. Earl was known as Canada’s No. 1 Singing Cowboy and began in Wingham on CKNX in 1941. In the 1990s he restarted the old Barn Dance up again and founded the Barndance Hall of Fame and Museum in Wingham.

18. Tamarack: Harvest Train
(James Gordon)
Live on Great North Wind,  Jan 30, 1995
Guelph ON
Carol LeClair: bass, vocals
James Gordon: guitar, whistle, vocals
Alex Sinclair: guitar, vocals

We had a running joke: Tamarack would release their new albums on my show coz we did it so often. Having had some excellent female singing bass players to sing with – Gwen Swick, Melanie Doane and Molly Kurvink – this time it was Carol LeClair who was just excellent. She was only in the band for about a year so this appearance was quite rare.

19. Scott Woods: Limerock
Live on Back To The Sugar Camp: May 21, 2005
Fergus, ON
Scott Woods, fiddle
Caroline Woods, electric piano

Scott won the Canadian Open Fiddle Championship at the Shelbourne Fiddle Festival when he was in his teens. Incredibly talented, he came in with his mother all the way from Fergus to appear on the program. The opening run of the bow on this tune always gets my attention, like triplets. This was from 2005, still at 91 St George.

Long Lost Relatives: True North Records TNX 5

21. Bruce Cockburn: Last Night Of The World
(Bruce Cockburn)
Live on Great North Wind, March 9, 1998 *
Bruce Cockburn: guitar, vocals

Last live performance song today belongs to Bruce Cockburn, one of the two songs he sung on The Great North Wind that day. Just back from a fact finding tour of West Africa, he wanted to talk about the griots and the music that he discovered along the way. Last Night of the World was brand new at the time, so this was sort of like a sneak preview. Because I announced this event on the FOLKDJ listserve, Cockburn’s American fans featured it in their Zene.

For a name they looked up words in the English dictionary and came up with dabster, which means a clever person.
