Ronnie Hawkins Moves To Canada

STORY BY: Ron Pradniuk
YEAR: 1964
LOCATION: Toronto, ON

Ron makes a case for including Ronnie Hawkins in the show BOOM. The musician from Arkansas moved to Peterborough, ON, and stayed in Canada for most of his life. He had a huge influence on the Canadian music industry, and "his presence said something about what Canada is, and how we're different from the US". Thanks for sharing, Ron.
