RIP Willie P. Bennett

Canadian troubadour Willie P. Bennett has passed away. Willie P. was an artist extradordinaire in his own right in addition to being a long time sideman of Fred Eaglesmith. He will be missed as a musician but more importantly as a kind and generous human being.

We’ll miss you Willie P. but we will never forget.
