Cambria’s CEO, Marty Davis, a big music fan, interviewed Ronnie on stage regarding his days with The Band. At the Burlington Arts Centre, the 78 year young, Ronny Hawkins was in fine form, relaxed and witty, surrounded by family, friends and fans. The Hawk blessed the audience with some supreme story telling; favourite stories from his six decades in rock’n’roll as well as singing a few of his favourite songs from his legendary career. The stories, the music, the filmed footage of his career and some very special guests created a truly memorable and entertaining evening. This was a once in a lifetime event and one that any music fan and true fan of The Hawk simply could not afford to miss!
The legendary musician and recent Order of Canada recipient Ronnie Hawkins has seen more, done more and performed more than just about anyone else in Canada for six decades. Originally from Arkansas, he started off touring in Ontario in the 50′s with his band calling themselves Rompin’ Ronnie Hawkins and The Hawks. In 1959 he settled in Hamilton and then Toronto and replaced the The Hawks with Ontario musicians who later would be known as The Band. He is a mentor to many well known Canadian musicians and many of them went on to have amazing careers.
