Ron, hands-down, is the best songwriter in Canada.” – Larry LeBlanc, Billboard Magazine
A few days before Christmas in 2009, an invited audience of about one hundred Ron Hynes fans braved a winter storm to arrive at CBC Halifax’s Studio One for the taping of this PICTURE PLANT TV Special, RON HYNES SOLO.
That night, as the storm blustered outside, we all settled in and shared a performance by Ron who was at his very best. He was warm, reflective, witty and engaging as he sang from his repertoire of old favourites, including a duet with the then-rising young star, AMELIA CURRAN.
This DVD release is a lasting record of the very best of the MAN OF A THOUSAND SONGS, Ron Hynes.
Featuring live acoustic performances of:
Boy From Old Perlican
Man Of A Thousand Songs
St. John’s Waltz
Kilkenney In The Cold Sun
My Old Man
