Ron Hynes 1950 – 2015

On this date in 2015 Newfoundland and Canada lost one of its greatest songwriters. A few years before I had spent a week chasing Ron Hynes around the bars and music halls in downtown St John’s for a magazine story. Photographed here at the historic LSPU Hall. It was an enlightening experience and a story of a much beloved and complicated genius. Ron Hynes. 1950 – 2015 …gone to Cryers Paradise. “Does the darkness grant release?”  Photo by Greg Locke
