Born and raised on a small dairy farm in Northern Ontario Ron's appreciation for music started at an early age. Kitchen parties, campfires and family gatherings always seemed to turn into a sing-along or dance party and anything from classical to country to rock and blues was fair game. 

Ron got his start in the Ottawa music scene touring the area with a traditional / celtic acoustic trio. After the band parted ways Ron set about settling his family in the Ottawa area and writing down ideas for his own songs.  The result is a blend of  folk, old country, blues and storytelling music that reflects his Northern Ontario upbringing. 

Ron is a fabulous songwriter / storyteller; sings with gentle humour, and knows exactly when to hit the heartstrings. If I wasn't hosting, I'd be lining up! ”
