One of the best known and most popular orchestras in the general Trinity and Bonavista Bays areas of the province — the Country Trio — is Nashville bound today.
The trio: band leader Harv Wiseman, Bob Hart and Wiseman’s sister, Daphne Strong, left for Nashville from St. John’s this morning. They’re being accompanied on the week-long trip to the Western and country music city of the world by a man to whom the trio probably owes their success in recent years — Wes Pitcher. Mr. Pitcher’s wife Marina is also making the trip.
While in Nashville, the Trio hopes to produce a tape of their performance and the ultimate aim, of course, would be to cut a record — there’s little doubt they have the required talent for that particular feat.
