Bass player and multi-instrumentalist David Woodhead visited Mtn Fruit after his show at the Langham Theatre with James Keelaghan on Nov 1st. If you visit his website you will find an amazing list of musicians that David has played with.
Turns out this was his first time back to Kaslo since 1978 when he played a benefit for saving the Langham in a band called ‘Island’. During his visit in 1978 he took several roles of black and white photos, some of which can be seen on Davids website. David very kindly donated a copy of all his photos to the Kootenay Lake Archives Society. Swell guy with some great stories. Helped enhance my limited understanding of an almost mythical time in Kaslo from my perspective. An influx of young families, Bruce Cockburn jamming at The Village Green cafe, saving the Langham and much more!
