Among the many outstanding songs Sharon & Bram will be highlighting at the 2016 Gil’s Hootenanny is “Talk About Peace”, written by Sharon’s husband, Joe Hampson. Joe, who passed away 10 years ago, was a member of Canada’s beloved folk group, The Travellers.
He joined The Travellers in the mid 1960s, and is credited with bringing “wonderful harmonies and spontaneity” to the group. He last performed “Talk About Peace” in 2006.
According to Sharon: “The Travellers and I trace our origins to sing-alongs at Camp Naivelt, so I will be continuing the tradition at Gil’s Hootenanny”. She added: “I am also delighted that we will be sharing this beautiful song with a new audience.”
