Without Jim Henman – April Wine may have never been the same. Without The Henman Family, East Coast music may not have been the same.
Jim Henman ( bass) along with cousins David (Guitar) and Ritchie (Drums) started the band April Wine. Jim grabbed his old mate from a band called Woody’s Termites and recruited him to join April Wine. That fellow, Myles Goodwyn, along with April Wine – went on to unimaginable heights including an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Long before the April Wine ‘family’ began, Jim was a member of another clan. This unit were named The Henmans and it contained ten kids.
These ‘kids’ have all gotten together and put out an album. It is the first time the family of musical ‘students’ have recorded together and for some – the first time writing songs.
Please listen below as the eldest brother Jim explains the family, the songs and the thoughts behind the Henman Family Album.
