Listowel Banner

Two big names will be putting on two big shows at this year's Listowel Kinsmen Paddyfest.Event co-ordinators have announced that April Wine and Doc Walker will be performing at the annual Irish festival which draws visitors from North Perth and beyond.Classic Canadian rockers April Wine are set to take the stage at the Listowel arena on March 19 as part of the 34th annual Kinsmen Paddyfest, with opening band The Doubts. Since the band was formed in 1969 with brothers David and Ritchie Henmen, cousin Jim Henmen and fellow musician Myles Goodwyn, April Wine has been a mainstay of Canadian music with 15 studio albums, three live releases and thousands of concerts.April Wine's first self-titled album in 1970 established Goodwyn as a composer, with the song Fast Train receiving airplay through the country and setting the band up for a second album. The second studio album On Record pushed April Wine into the North American spotlight with hits like You Could Have Been A Lady and Bad Side of the Moon. April Wine emerged as a new band in the early 1970s, with Jim Clench having replaced Jim Henmen for the second album, and the Henmen brother leaving as well. After a few auditions, Jerry Mercer and Gary Moffat joined the band. The new, tighter, flashier April Wine went on to release Electric Jewels in 1973, and Stand Back in 1975, an album that many people consider one of the band's greatest accomplishments with hits like Tonight Is A Wonderful Time To Fall In Love and Oowatanite. .....
