Some of you may remember me from my appearances starting at age 15 in Canora, Saskatchewan, or on radio and TV. Others may remember me living in Maple Ridge, BC, where I owned the Little Cricket Gift Gallery for 14 years.
More recently some of you may have seen me walking on one of the beaches of the Sunshine Coast, BC, searching for my latest inspiration.
Hopefully most of you will remember me as singer~songwriter Ron Kalmakoff. That is where my heart is today.
After 7 years since my last album, Turn Around in 2010, I am back with a new recording project: ‘Long, Long Time’, YouTube.
Send me email or buy my music at Bandcamp. I’d also like to hear from you via Facebook or Instagram.
