Norfolk County Musicians - Nunn Family


Thanks to our friend Tom Nunn for the following photographs. These were all taken in the western part of Norfolk Co., Ontario. between about 1925 and 1960 Tom says, "The picture of our Aunt Gladys and Aunt Dorothy was taken outside of our grandparents' house in Middleton Township around 1925/6.
The family Christmas picture was in 1955 and the family reunion shot likely around 1959/60 in Tillsonburg. Our grandfather (Harvey Nunn Sr.) was a fiddle player through his life and used to take our father with him to play house parties in the late 30s, when our Dad was 11/12 years old. That explains why I wound up on stage at age 12 in my father's own dance band in the 60s...that's just the way they learned. Dad was listening to southern bluegrass in the mid-'40s on two old floor radios and also had a recording machine that he used to capture himself, our Uncle Norm Nunn, and later his in-laws, Leigh Schott, Bill Schott and Harry Carruthers" (who played together as the Dusty Acre Boys.)
