    JOHNNY BURKE

    Johnny Burke's vocal style gives the traditional country sound a unique flavour. Few can match his talent for song presentation. He has 'twang', feel, and a sincerity that shines through every lyric. The pleasure he derives while performing spills over to his audience and back to the stage.

    Four-time Big Country Award winner, Johnny accomplished a long-standing career in the country music industry with many number one hit singles like Wild Honey, which received the Big Country Award for Top Single in 1978. In 2012, he was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.

    Johnny returns to The Drake Hotel, where he regularly performed in the early-60's, for a special evening of great country music.
