Subject: RE: Toronto 60s music scene: were you there?
I know Kevin.   In fact, I'm him. ;-) Just found this group after being aimed at it by a chap involved in a thread on the Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum.

My time spent at Ring Music on Harbord was mostly building Ruby Banjos in the back with my two partners, Bill Wager and Bruce Dowd.   Bruce is still an active and very good repairman working in Toronto and Bill has disappeared back into the wilds of the US.

I've seen a picture of Bob Dylan wearing that ugly Tyrolean hat, standing next to Mike Cavendish many years ago. Mike had it up on his gun-room wall in the basement of his old place in Campbelville, so there's no doubt it once graced the immortal melon of the Bard of Hibbing.
