The Packet (Clarenville) - - Editorial -

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.
