  • The Wellington Advertiser - Hometown Roots: Deep into the music
    all that he listens to everything from hip hop to Stravinsky I like checking out pretty much everything Zuidema said I m kind of in the middle He took to singing after hearing his older brother Shaun who was a country singer with enough talent to place highly in Canada s Got Talent but who prefers home life today rather than Nashville where he was invited to try his luck If there is one thing that sets Hometown Roots apart it is their unwavering thankfulness to gasp their parents Rock bands are generally about rebelling and throwing off parental authority Then again how many old time parents did for their rocking sons what Hometown Roots parents are doing Our parents are the reason we ve got to where we are said Zuidema without a trace of self consciousness They were happy to list their parents as influences and give them credit The parents are John and Caroline Zuidema Peter and Cindy Ledwith Ivan and Sandra Martin and Bill and Mary Priebe Ledwith s dad drives them to Toronto for meetings and also writes press releases for the group Zuidema said When we started Brandon did most of the bookings But that led to difficulties How much does a band charge City bars require agents So Zuidema s mom took over the bookings Most of their parents have been involved with music as either music lovers or performers so the influence has always been around Once they got into performing in bars it seemed they were on their way They did a Friday the 13th show at Port Dover and played in front of 200 000 people when motorcyclists packed that town We were the only original band said Zuidema referring to Hometown Roots song writing abilities That got them more attention and overwhelmed with bookings and his mom stepped in to help Soon they played bars in Burlington and Toronto They had a tour of Alberta last year and are hoping to expand it to several more dates when they head west again next May They have cut a CD with 11 original songs and are planning to go into the studio sometime in the next few months Right now they are looking for a producer and the plan is to hire someone to promote their new work to area radio stations Writing their own music is nothing new We always wrote our own songs said Zuidema Priebe added Right from the first rehearsal That is a collaborative effort Someone brings an idea to rehearsal and they all work on it until they have the music down The lyrics are mainly written by Zuidema who admits he is a bit of a procrastinator which means he often finishes the words just prior to recording Deadline pressure seems to help Hometown Roots understands today s world is a multi media one The group has songs on My Space and Youtube and it even has its own merchandise available in the form

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Afghanistan veteran brought home reality of war at Rockwood service on Nov. 5
    the Kandahar headquarters compound to honour the fallen of Canada in that war and the wars we have fought before he said But before I went to that ceremony I attended a ramp ceremony for two United States soldiers killed in the 24 hours previous in a neighbouring province Ramp ceremonies are specially orchestrated military funerals given by a country s military for a soldier sailor marine or airman who died in battle Ramp ceremonies are a sobering event no matter the nationality of the soldiers Moyer said And they are images I will not soon forget They unfortunately were almost daily events at the time of the campaign last fall Moyer said while he had been a soldier for close to 20 years this was for me the first time where the experiences of the death danger and the loss that I d heard about for so much of my life were actually a reality for me He said the first time seeing the soldiers who were killed and the comrades who carried them from the armoured personnel carriers or the ambulance onto a plane often within hours of battle the thing that impressed me the most was their youth I ve been a soldier myself for a long time now enough to know that they would be young But it somehow took me aback While there were no pictures of the deceased Moyer said You could get a pretty good idea of who they were by looking at their buddies They were often filthy tanned by the sun and looked fatigued from the struggle they were waging and the burden they now carried with the remains of their friend Moyer remembered as a young man standing by the cenotaph in St Catharines close to where he grew up and watching the few old soldiers who remained from the First World War lay a wreath of remembrance He thought for them it must have seemed so long ago At the time Second World War vets were still plentiful and young enough to be working and much more able to participate and march in the parade Moyer said Today the First World War vets are gone and we are coming close to the 100th anniversary of the start of that war The Second World War vets are no longer as abundant and many a great soldier and character has passed on At one point it seemed we would be in danger of forgetting veterans who had passed away but the Canadian involvement overseas over the past decade and half has reborn an appreciation for the sacrifice of our fathers grandfathers neighbours and friends Moyer hoped that acknowledgement as shared by the many people at the Rockwood service would continue to grow While Canada has had soldiers at war for the past number of years it has not been a country at war in the sense of the First and Second World Wars People go about their daily lives and unless
