Harry Hibbs Returns

He was known as Newfoundland’s favourite son, a shy fellow who became a musical hero to the thousands of Newfoundlander’s who migrated to Ontario in the 60’s and 70’s looking for work.  With his button accordion and a great band, Harry brought the audiences to their feet dancing and singing along to the old tunes that reminded them of home. Newfoundland clubs were a feature of Ontario then and Harry filled them. His popularity soared, he hosted a TV show from the Caribou Club, he sold gold records and he brought joy to thousands. Along the way there were great highs and sad lows but always there was that smile, that wink, that celebrity who was just one of the folks. With this show, his times and his music live again.
