#RIPStompinTom – Thanks For Being The Soundtrack To My First-Ever YouTube Video

Stompin’ Tom Connors died today.

Shea and I had the privilege of seeing him at the Calgary Folk Fest and is usually the case for old vets like him (see Dolly Parton at Craven or any number of “vets” who’ve come to Regina Folk Fest), he came out and stole the show.

How fitting that the first video I ever uploaded to YouTube had Stompin’ Tom playing in the background…

My mother-in-law was a big fan – she also introduced me to one of his lesser known gems…

Luckily others are picking up the mantle…
