Love NOLA...and loving the silver too! Safe travels!

I always enjoy Newark (especially comparing to Toronto and Atlanta) and worth facing any airport to get to New Orleans! Enjoy!

I love your hair colour, Jimmy. Be safe <3

Wash your hands well and often ,my east coast friend And safe travels

Not my favourite airport either but I had a lovely experience there when a choir spontaneously entertained . Enjoy Nawlins would love to go sometime

Just make sure you aren’t eating any snake or bats flown in from China.

Safe Travels, can't wait to see you at the Savoy again.

we spent an entire evening and night there!! I shudder just thinking about that place.

I hope you have a wonderful time and perhaps come back with another chart topper!

Safe travels my friend πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘

Have a safe trip

Enjoy The Big Easy!

Safe travels Jimmy 😁

We sure do miss him! Harvey said even in a bus he sounds wicked! ❀️

I was lucky to see your family performance twice at the Winnipeg Centennial concert hall and you solo at Club Regent. I just moved to Nova Scotia and I hope I can have that opportunity to take in a local performance. Much love.

I was one of the lucky staffers who got to see the Rankin Family perform at the 1993 Premiers’ Conference in Baddeck NS. It was an unforgettable performance!!!

I am an elementary music teacher, and tell his story every year to my students. I play your music and my kids just love it, and feel like we know you. Went to your incredible concert in Parrsboro this Christmas and play your songs all the time. Thanks for sharing. We hurt with you.

20 years crazy...we miss him so much!

I’ll never forget that sad sad day He was an amazing person with such talent I believe all of Cape Breton was heart broken Sending love and also just blessed that we had a chance to meet him

He was an amazing musician, may he RIP ! Thanks for sharing!

I was listening to old Rankin Family music this week, and thought of him too.. a fine fiddler and piano player..

Amazing musician.🎻🎹 Remember hearing it on the news. So sad.

So talented , tragic loss , his music lives on...πŸ™

I miss Johnny M... A lot of folks don't know this but John Morris was an awesome hockey player also. He had soft hands around the net and could score. Jackie Cameron used to call him " The Little buzz saw"

This was awesome God Bless all of the Rankin Family They sure had some very sad dayd God Is with them all Thanks for sharing the best

Thanks. Tough to replace a giant.

My thoughts are with you and your family today on a sad day for your family. No doubt in my mind he is looking down over you all and protecting you

I remember this day vividly when I heard the news. Such sad tragedy. Also grateful that the kids got out. Hugs for the Rankin family!

Awesomeness, young fellas you were, do you remember where you were traveling to

Funny how time passes... 20 years in the blink of an eye. He was a rare one. ❀️

Jimmy I have never been to a Rankin Family Concert, but so enjoy your music here Stateside. John Morris inspired me to try my hand at the fiddle. Wish he could guide my bow from heaven to sound a little bit as great as he did. God Rest Your Soul John MorrisπŸ™πŸ’”

Thoughts with you all, we were lucky enough to see you at the Coventry & Warwick Arts Centre in the UK in the 90’s - fantastic show and we were so shocked to hear about John Morris. Remembered always.

He was an amazing person, father, musician. His playing (regardless of fiddle or piano) had a sparkle of history, tradition and life as an amazing thread that brought people together in harmony. πŸ™πŸ˜‡ his music and the music of the entire family was a blessing for me through many many years.

The Rankins were one of my first concerts to attend when I moved here from Labrador. Your family's loss was felt by many across this province. Hugs.

A tragic loss of such a great talent felt by fans near and far but especially here at home in Cape Breton. God bless.

I love the Music from the Rankin family and was struck by the loss of John and the way it happened. So on a vacation to beautiful Cape Breton I made a point to find the location and my son and I stood at cliff side and paid our respects. It was important to us to have that moment.

Watching this makes me more in awe of the musicians we love to listen to. They play because they love it and we benefit from their long hours on a bus in all kinds of weather. Thank you Rankin Family and all other musicians who do what they love for us.

Missed greatly. The Rankins have suffered a few tragic losses. Your Maritime fans grieve with you.
