Throughout the years, as country music continues to evolve, it is important to remember the pioneers in the industry. Those dedicated individuals and groups put their hearts and souls into making their special brand of music come alive in the Ottawa Valley.

The Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame was founded in 1980, incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1987 and became a registered charity in 1988.

This website is dedicated to all of the exceptional people who have been inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame for their contributions to making country music in the Valley what it is today.

Please enjoy your tour of the site and take the time to visit each inductee’s page and perhaps take a trip down memory lane.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of 2007 inductee, Roger Damphousse.

Guitar player, fiddle player and so much more. Roger played with many of the greats such as Terry Carisse, Pauline Noland and his latest partner in life & music, 2013 inductee Lauren Hall. Roger gave up music in 1984 to pursue other interests.

When he got the call that he and his brother, Claude (Quincy), were to be inducted in 2007, he began to practice. Then he met Lauren Hall and he had the music bug again. His contributions to the country scene here in the Valley will be sorely missed. Our condolences go out to Lauren, Quincy and all Roger’s family at this difficult time. Rest in peace, Roger. .
