With a catalogue built upon razor-sharp lyricism, and unforgettable melodies, Ron Hawkins has long been revered as one of Canada’s greatest contemporary singer-songwriters. As lead singer/multi-instrumentalist and main songwriter of Canada’s legendary Lowest of the Low, Ron Hawkins has enjoyed many accolades through the years. With the 20th anniversary re-release of Shakespeare My Butt, Hawkins and his old band mates took to the road once again and completed a spring 2011 tour culminating in a career highlight performance at a sold out Massey Hall.
