Luke Simmons

Luke Simmons and His Blue Mountain Boys came to New Zealand and recorded a lot of stuff with Noel Peach at Astor Studios. All material was released on the TANZA label. The group consisted of the Three Canadians Luke Simmons, Vic Crane Acoustic Bass, Clarence LeVesque Fiddle.

The interesting thing was that in NZ they were joined by local musicians Ray Gunter on Lead Guitar, Lloyd Sly, Piano Accordian and Bill Sevesi, who had to adapt his normal Hawaiian style of Steel Guitar to the Country Style.

All this in 1953.

I understand Luke Simmons continued entertaining into the Rock and roll era with the more upbeat style of country at the time.
