Hi Joyce

I never realized you were from Nova Scotia. I grew up listening to Testing 1-2-3, Cotton Jenny, Set the Table Before You Dine, and so many more. Such a great album ... I think I still have my copy! Nice to see Donnie Haggart's name in your guest book too ... Being from Pictou County we listened to Don and Jim's album all the time as well. Greats to see you are still singing. Be sure to put any 2015 appearances on your site so we know where to find you.

Hi Joyce,

I just came across your website and had a chance to read the biography. Glad to see you are doing well and still involved in country music. Just this past weekend your name came up while I was talking with Guy Melanson at the grocery store. He was telling me about his planned summer trip to the east coast to play in your event. I was telling him that I baby sat your two daughters in the early '80's when you and Gerald live on the 3rd concession near highway 401. Gerald worked with my mother (Linda) at Johnson Mathew and Mallory.

Hi Joyce, I've been converting all of my old albums into a digital format and came across Testing 1-2-3. It was signed by you at a show at CFB Greenwood. I was only 7 at the time, but somehow I was at that show with my parents. Brings back great memories!

Hi Joyce, I have lived in Aylesford for 24 years and this was the first year that I attended the Country Music Show that you put on at Fox Mountain. all I can say is that it was the best country music that I have listened to other then maybe the Grand Old Oprey.
Maybe you should put up another sign on the stage at Fox Mountain Nova Scotia's Little Nashville
Thank you for your wonderfull country music and for all the bands that you bring in

Joyce, wow u r a gemini. So am I. I listened to your songs since 1973 when i move to Thompson, Manitoba. I used to sing along with you. You have a beautiful voice as well as your lyrics are meaningful. I still would like to see you someday, I do believe in dreams come true. I retired last July and I am glad of this new journey. Until we meet, many blessings. I would love to purchase your songs. When I departed from Manitoba in 1991, your music did not come along with me due to various reasons. take care, sl

Hi. I stumbled across your web site while doing research on who sang Testing 1 2 3. My sister-in-law was wanting the words. We both enjoy the song. I am trying to convince her to go to the Music festival in August. Are there motels close to the site. I am too old to rough camp! I know you must get tired of being asked but do you do that song at the festival. I am ordering your CD The Other Side of Me. I wish I could order it through your website by e-mail and send you an e-mail money transfer. Heaven only knows when I will get around to getting a money order. Take care and all the best in the future.

Hi Joyce.I am from Amherst NS. A couple weeks ago I was surfing
the net to find some of your recordings to take to our campground for the
weekend.I too am a local artist and my love of country music runs deep.I
was disappointed when I could not find any of yours as I grew up listening
to your albums and of course over the years got worn out.Well my wife and
I's best friends are seasonal campers in Five Islands NS beside us.He is
an awesome bass player who I hire every chance I can.He also plays for
Brian Mallery. Because of work issues we could not make the country music
festival this past weekend that he invited us to attend with them.When
they got back Sunday night and he told me this is your festival I was so
disappointed that I missed it.Next year I will be making plans to attend
as I would love to hear you live. Just wondering if you have cd copy
available of your album Testing 1-2-3 and if so how can I purchase it.So
glad to hear you are still out there gracing people with your amazing
vocals.Take care Larry Cormier Amherst NS.

Hi Joyce
I have loved testing 123 for years. It was the first song I ever sang on
a stage, as a young girl. I am singing at the NB Country Showcase this
weekend at the Fredericton Playhouse and have picked the classic Testing
123 to sing. Thank you for the song it has been in my Guitar songbook for
many years.
Hope life is good for you.


Feb. 1, 2010

I met you a few years back as I was playing steel with Ryan Cook at the Fox
Mountain Country Music Festival. I enjoyed your great country music...keep it up!
As a pedal steel player, it's nice to hear an artist keeping the "traditional" in

I saw you perform on PEI around 1972 in Charlottetown and I loved your singing
voice. I bought your album at the time but over the years I have lost it. I
recognized it when I looked at your albums. I cannot believe I found your name
and have been reading up on your career. Your song Testing 123 was spectacular.
I use to go around the house singing that song many years ago. I have lost the
words and I now have learned to play the guitar and would love to have the words
and chords. I am so happy to have met you on PEI in the 70's and I certainly
would love to hear you singing again sometime. Thank you for giving me the chance
to hear you back then because I loved your singing voice and will always remember
that wonderful time. Take care and God Bless.

I enjoyed your site and singing. I am a songwriter, I write a
lot of real country and country Gospel. I don't perform but I've had a
fair number of songs cut by indie artist, nothing major. I've written over
3000 songs, about 10% of them have been recorded or demoed. I grew up with
the traditional country music, I am not fussy about what passes for
country today.

I was watching your show on the web and thoroughly enjoyed it. I've been wondering if you still recall back in the early 60's we had a car accident on the old gold river bridge and you and your friend drove us to our home on North King St. in Bridgewater. I guess that was probably 1964-65. We certainly grateful for you to come along at such a late time, ( middle of the night if I recall )Anyway keep up the great work.

Fox Mountain Country Music Festival was wonderful...I was impressed by how professionally it was organized...and that park...so big and well equipped with hot & cold running water and so clean. It was good also to hear Andy Bowes (Knew him from Wilf Carter Night) Yodell a couple of Wilf's songs, to a rapturous audience who gave him a standing ovation...Wilf C. ain't forgotten yet.All the performers were super...

I am also grateful to that wonderful audience who applauded and laughed at my corny jokes...enjoyed every minute of it. Joyce, worked so hard and, could not have been a better host or organizer...and I tip my Pubnico hat to her.We need more of these festivals.

Hello Joyce

I enjoyed your website very much. Was hoping that you would have sung "Testing 1, 2,3" on your video clips - that one was great and brings back memories of when you did the Bridgewater Ex in late 60's. Who would have ever thought when you left the Royal Bank to go to TO with your husband that you would come home a "star". I didn't even know that you could sing . You could have belted out a few tunes for Dianne and myself while you were under the dryers in the "Hair Do Beauty Salon" in Bridgewater. You sound great! Wishing you all the best and I'll keep checking your web site.

J'ai took in the HANK SNOW TRIBUTE IN MONCTON AT THE CAPITOL THEATRE ON main street. The show stage wise had some good musicians on it especially RAY LEGER,great musician I know for a fact. 51 years of doing HANK SNOW MUSIC certainly makes me a little authority on his time.

The steel player sure was a good choice for HANK when he toured, the only thing missing was the essence, by that I mean HANK had a way with a song that was not presented at that tribute. One can feel the presence of Hank if the song is song right. Imitaters have a way of almost there but not quite. His rhythm was not presented, nor was the sense of how he picked the flattop. Sometimes I almost get the urge to go on stage in a big way to show why, but what is there to prove, he was one singer and musician that was surely under-rated. The show was very presented, and as far as yourself,it was the first time I have heard you in person, you have a very good voice, I like what you sang.

I still have your album with TESTING, ONE TWO THREE on it, a great song and you should contemplate on re-releasing it. Denise Murray has a great voice and did very well,of course original music can not be contested, it has its' own merit. Ray Leger's father also is a great musician. I've been through the business and still in the business,singing Hanks' songs and many others. I also believe that the outfits that he wore would fit me, and I also have the look he has and the features, but that's another story. Once I just about wrote to him so say how about going on a tour and we could call it SNOW WHYTE AND THE 7 WHATEVERS, too late now, but j'ai considered it.

Bye for now

We're looking forward to seeing and hearing you at the Aug. Fox Mountain Festival. Do you recommend purchasing our tickets right away or later in July?

I really enjoyed the songwriters circle at Fox Mountain Campground in 2006. You made me feel very special when you called me out of the audience and gave me a chance to perform a couple of my own compositions. I am quite proud to say that I have added to my compositions and hope someday to have a chance to perform more. Maybe see you this year at the Campout in August. I am pleased to say that Valley Blue will be at the open mike again this year. See you then.

HI JOYCE, Maybe you do not know me but i know you through my brother Ray Bryan. We met back in the seventys or so. We attended a lot of the dances in Woodstock and little Sweburg . It was great to meet you then, and it is certainly a must to congratulate you on your thirty-fifth year now. And to think that it took this long to be honoured as you are, but is a wonderful feeling i'm sure. From what I have been told you are just the most wonderful preson, and your own story is so pricless, full of love coming through. I can truly say I like you, as you are my kind of person. Ray thinks the world of you and from the way you have lived your life till now I can see why he does.

Well Joyce, I certainly dont want to take up your special time in the lime light, but I wish you all the best in the year and may more good news come again right behind this great news.

I feel the strong sence of love in your words and it sounds like the wonderful home we were raised in. We were poor but love was strong and that is exacly what we all need to keep on going. When we need a change it will happen in us.

So Joyce just keep up the good you are doing and good will come flowing back to you .

I'm happy for you, and want to say God loves you and so do I.

sent with love,

Hi Joyce & Jerry, hope you had a great Christmas and want to wish you both all the best in 2007. Have had a few calls re your appearance at the Milford Coffeehouse and just today looked up your phone number for a lady, glad to hear the Coffeehouse generated some interest in your music. Maybe we can do it again next November if you are available. We have changed the format slightly, we are looking for about half gospel now and the rest is the performer's choice.

Again, have a great one
