Violinist Lara St. John Inducted into Forest City London's Music Hall of Fame

The Canadian violinist will be inducted into the Forest City London's Music Hall of Fame in Ontario, Canada

Lara St. John, who is originally from Ontario said, “This is really great. It’s definitely a big honor coming from my home town.”

An acclaimed performer, she has played with the major orchestras of Cleveland, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, Toronto, Montreal, the Boston Pops in addition to international ensembles.

She recently launched her new digital concert series, "The Atterbury House Sessions," to be streamed on The Violin Channel.

St. John was inducted along with Earl Heywood — and bands Johnny Stevens and the Canadians and B.W. Pawley & Plum Loco.

Earl Heywood, or rather Canada's Singing Cowboy, was inspired by Gene Autry, America's Singing Cowboy, and toured the east coast of the United States and Canada.

Johnny and the Canadians primarily performed R&B music and eventually signed a record deal in New York while B.W. Pawley and Plum Loco was a pop-rock band that disbanded in 2016.

During London Music Week, which will be held from June 6-13, the late radio broadcaster, Greg Simpson, will also be honored for his dedication to the Hall of Fame.

“Every year it’s a tough process to identify worthy recipients, because of the incredible music history of London, but our Hall of Fame team did a great job this year in identifying five incredible talents that took our city around the world,” said Rena O’Halloran, the curator of the Forest City London Music Hall of Fame.

The virtual induction ceremony will take place on June 8 via the Hall's Facebook page: https://bit.ly/3ddUvuD.
