Looking For Information —Jim White Innisville Orchestra and …..

Was this the Innisville Orchestra?


Jim White, of Innisville, and his orchestra were a familiar sight throughout the Ottawa Valley for more than four decades. Jim started his entertainment career in  the mid 1930s playing with his brother Ed at dances in Innisville and Drummond Centre. In the 1940s he played with the Stardusters Band and in 1960 formed the Country Pals. He used to play at the Perth Legion’s Saturday night dances from 1966-1980.. Files from John C. Ebbs
