It is with great sadness that we say good bye to our long-time friend, Derek Harrington. Jimmy performed with Derek on and off for close to 40 years. Derek died at the too-young age of 66 years old at his adopted home of St. John’s Newfoundland on 22 February, leaving behind a legacy of music that will live on long into the future. In the words of Hamlet:
Welcome to Jimmy Carton’s website. We’ve had some challenges keeping the site up and running due to hacker problems – Jimmy attracts interest from all sides apparently!
Just to bring folks up to date – Jimmy had an excellent time in Newfoundland in February. He enjoyed the company of world class musicians on stage with him at the Arts and Culture Centre (see the ‘Photos’ page for a couple of pictures from the trip). Aside from that, he’s been enjoying some social events, meeting both fans of his and people of whom he is a fan.
Jimmy is well and relaxing, but will consider select gigs where he can enjoy some of his long time favourite friends and places. Feel free to contact us (see the ‘Contact’ page) if you think you have something that will pique his interest!
