Hank Snow: Snow in Hawaii


During his earliest years in Nova Scotia, Hank Snow (1914-1999) was attracted to the soothing sound of a Hawaiian steel guitar. By 1937 Snow was an established country singer on Canadian radio and records, but he still retained his love for Hawaiian music. Although he seldom strayed far from the Maritime Provinces, he often dreamed about life in the picturesque Pacific Islands. He wrote his first Hawaiian song in 1937 while working at a Halifax radio station. The earliest track here, Under Hawaiian Skies, was cut during a February 1941 session in chilly Montreal.
