OrchardTV Live Webcast with Whiskey Jack, Bluegrass, Orchard Studio, Saturday, Nov. 1st at 6pm

The next Live Webcast at OrchardTV is this Saturday, Nov. 1st at 6pm with “Whiskey Jack” performing songs from their new show “Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom”.
The band toured Canada extensively between 1979 and 1987, appearing at festivals and concerts from coast to coast. As well as being regular guests of Morningside and Variety Tonight on CBC Radio, they were stars of The Tommy Hunter Show for five years in the 1980s. They went on to make numerous appearances on The Alan Thicke Show, Fire on the Mountain, Ralph Emory, and The Nashville Network, thus earning them the distinction of being the most televised bluegrass/acoustic country band in Canada.
They also recorded with the likes of Al Cherny of Country Hoedown fame, and world-famous fiddle player Graham Townsend.
In 1993, Stompin’ Tom Connors teamed with Whiskey Jack to record one of his come-back albums, “Dr. Stompin’ Tom Connors eh?” (featuring the celebrated “Gumboot Clogaroo”), followed by a triumphant national tour.
Log in to www.orchardtv.com/whiskeyjack on Saturday evening to watch Live.
