Biographical Notes

From The Canadian Encyclopedia - Harry Hibbs (Henry Thomas Joseph) [1942-1989] was a singer, songwriter and accordionist from Bell Island, NL, who grew up playing the button accordion. He moved to Toronto in 1961 and worked in various factories. In 1968, he began singing and playing the accordion as His Nibs, Harry Hibbs, Newfoundland's Favourite Son at the Caribou Club, a Newfoundlanders' social centre in Toronto. He starred from 1969 to 1975 in CHCH TV's At the Caribou and The Harry Hibbs Show. With his Caribou Show Band (later called the Sea Forest Plantation), he performed throughout the Maritimes and Ontario and toured the British Isles in the early 1970s. Hibbs made more than ten albums before his career waned in the late 1970s. Sales of his early albums made him a leading Canadian recording artist of the day. Hibbs' music mixed the Scottish and Irish folk traditions of Newfoundland with elements of country music. His repertoire included jigs, reels, dance pieces, and his own ballads, mostly tributes to Newfoundland.
