JIM HAYWARD & WILLOWRIDGE
                 BLUEGRASS
Jim Hayward and Willowridge have been together for approximately 13 years. A few faces have changed over the years but the end result has always been the same -- lots of good times playing Bluegrass and Old Tyme Country Music at various events across Ontario. Willowridge has played at many festivals,  band shell concerts, benefits and places where musicians get together just to have fun playing music. 
Willowridge released their first cd (Thanks For The Ride) in 2010. It was a great success. The second successful cd was released in June of 2012
(Never Going Down That Road Again). The third cd was released in 2015
(Willowridge Mountain Home ).  This cd is still selling well today
The fourth cd was released in February 2018 (Favourites)

WILLOWRIDGE IS BACK IN THE STUDIO CREATING A GOSPEL CD TO BE RELEASED BY SPRING 2019. THIS PROJECT WILL INCLUDE SOME ORIGINAL TUNES WRITTEN BY A GOOD FRIEND IN TENNESSEE.
