Players in our area include Merv Wilson , Al Bragg, Claude (Quincy ) Damphouse , Danny Loyer, Gord Barnes , newcomer Brad Scott, and pleased to hear Danny Artuso started playing again. Let's not forget guitar wizard Roger Coulombe...
Steel is alive and kicking in the Ottawa Valley!!!!!

Bob Lucier is a master of the pedal steel. His recordings & solo albums show his virtuosity. Great guy too! Some other notables missing here are Ron Dann, Steve Smith, Dennis DeLorme & Burke Carroll. I'm not playing any more but include myself also.

Mike H, you belong right up there with the other notables you mentioned. I remember seeing you with Morgan Davis (at the Isabella maybe?) way back in the 80's. Canada has missed you.

Thanks Bob; Those were the days!! Toronto had a very unique scene going on. Let's not forget Buddy Cage while were on this subject.

Yes, Buddy for sure.

After I left Toronto for the first time you wound up playing with a former bandmate of mine - Mike Bagan. With Sebastian and also Bazil of Blue Rodeo fame as I recall?

Yes a scene for sure - some highs and lows. I don't miss the Orchard Park Tavern. Or the Matador…….

Yes, Mike, all of those you mentioned. They are all fine people.
Let's not forget a friend of mine, Dale Rivard, from Tilbury, On. A pro and a fine person to call my friend.

I'm just outside Woodstock Ontario, in Princeton, Ont. Been trying to learn for about a year or so. Loving it and learning lots from all the great people on this site.

Mike H.:

Ronny Dann passed away quite a few years ago, as did Larry Dee, another fine Ontario player.

Thanks Bent, I may just do that. I grew up in London. I would love to see your shop.

Hi Graham; I remember Larry Dee, I was at Ron's funeral, he was honouered by his friends & family in the most touching display of life & love I've ever witnessed. A wonderful human being. Bent, Dale Rivard introduced me to Franklin steels which I've played ever since. Yes there are talented Sask. players out there, notably Randall Currie who's tearing it up on the charts with Brad Paisley these day. Randall also studied with Ron.

I guess I need to add Kyle Rhodes in here, a transplanted American picker. He's the son of the late Bobby C Rhodes who toured with Webb Pierce, Wanda Jackson, and a few other names. Kyle lived in Trail BC for a spell, now, as far as I know, lives somewhere in Vancouver. He was born in Minneapolis and picked many times with Hal Rugg.

Why doesn't Kyle post himself? He is totally, completely, in every manner of speaking, computer illiterate. He was able to figure out his 14 stringer with eight pedals & levers, but cannot figure out the computer.

Hello from Canada - just north of Calgary Alberta. I've been lurking on the forum for years and just got around to joining. Been playing PSG for almost 45 years off & on (mostly off the last 15 years - playing bass). Now that I'm retired I thought I'd dust off the old Sho~Bud and start picking on it again.

Are there any steel players between Red Deer and Calgary out there that are playing or jamming these days?

I probably wouldn't call myself a player but as a friend of mine say "I own one". Part time Halifax, part time Zephyrhills, FL.

Hi there, my name is Dan, hailing from Toronto. New member and still pretty new to steel. I have always liked the sound of steel guitar, but only began playing about a year ago. But I've got the bug bad! I am amazed at all of great information and people on here who are willing to share what they know. I am glad to be a part of it!

Dan

P.S. Dean that Sho Bud looks real nice!

I'm trying to be a steel player.
Right now I'm "that guitar player who keeps bringing his steel to gigs even though we don't ask him to".
Ha!

Edmonton, Alberta.

Dwayne, I think I met you at the Daines Ranch last month...you play a beauty of a Desert Rose if I recall?

Anyway...I've been playing a year and a half and sure would love to find someone in the "780" to get together with and get a few tips from.
