Nathan's Hands


Nathan Tinkham has made his living playing guitar for most of his adult life and believe you me that's easier said than done. From busking on the streets of Victoria to founding The Great Western Orchestra and ten years of touring with Canadian legend Ian Tyson on the resume too, he's done it all and he's still going strong. Nathan's latest project is a lovingly produced tribute to the late Wilf Carter, Canada's first big country music star. He's debuting the CD tonight at The Roxy and you can bet your boots I'll be there. After all these years, he's not the least bit jaded. Nathan still loves to play and play he does!

Nice idea for a series, Snapper. All three show much affection, but the clarity of the piano shot is gorgeous. I think I am just becoming able to see the difference between digital and film - even when displayed on monitors.

this is a wonderful picture, you can see the love in these hands by the way he cradles the instrument.

well done!

I'm sure his concert was wonderful and you were on the front row. Love this photo too Snap. This series is top notch.

Wilf Carter---boy there's a nme from long ago. I remember hearing about him and hearing his old records and liking him too. Thanks for the memory and I hope you enjoy Nathan's new CD. MB
