Harry Hibbs

Harry played the Horseshoe and we hit it off enough that I got invited to the dressing room, Harry carried two case one with accordion and the other he said contained his music.You had to get invited to the dressing room to see his music which was 2 bottles of rum I more than a few with him. I remember his drunken rendition of his song mother where the tears would flow down his cheeks and occasionaly he would get a little raucous and go over backwards in his chair. Never the less he usually played to pretty good crowds

Harry Hibbs accordionist, Newfoundland & Labrador - 1993 - hosted At The Caribou on TV - one of the first Canadians to have 4 Gold records to his credit
