Hamilton Music Legend Dallas Harms Passes

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Canadian Country Music Legend Dallas Harms. The fabled Hamiltonian passed away on October 12, 2019. Our condolences to his family, friend and fans.

Dallas had many chart-topping hits including his number one smash Honky Tonkin' (All Night Long) and  Paper Rosie (later recorded by American Gene Watson as a top 3 single and title track to his album).

He was inducted to the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 1989 and won the Hamilton Music Awards Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.  Also Paper Rosie was inducted into Canadian Songwriting Hall of Fame in 2018.

There was a lot of social media reaction regarding his passing. Here are a few samples:

My father in law Ernie Varga goes back many years with him. Dallas was with him when my wife was born...I played with him a few times and he gave me his old Sunn amp a few years back. RIP. Sad news.
George Belmore
It was an honour to play for you and call you friend. Godspeed.
He brought Rock and Roll to Canada in the form of RONNIE HAWKINS!
We'll add more comments as we find them.
