Stratford claims a very fine musical heritage. Among its luminaries are the late, great Richard Manuel of The Band, John Till of Janis Joplin’s Full Tilt Boogie Band, and Ken Kalmusky of Ian & Sylvia’s Great Speckled Bird. Manuel, Till, and Kalmusky were also members of Ronnie Hawkins backup group, The Hawks. And today, we cannot forget Justin Bieber who acquaints a whole new group of music lovers with Stratford, Canada.
