*** UPDATE ***

Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame Show and Induction Ceremony

The Board of Directors regrets to announce the postponement of the September 29, 2020 event. The board and production group are 90% ready but Covid-19 is not.

In following up with Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe, we were advised that the theatre will be closed until the end of August at the earliest. That timing would not allow for ticket sales and final arrangements.

We now turn our attention to the 2021 show scheduled for September 26th. This will be the 40th anniversary for the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame that promises to be an exceptional Show and Induction Ceremony.

The Board of Directors wishes to express our gratitude to the many volunteers and sponsors for their continued support. Rest assured, your participation will allow for the ongoing viability of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame.

We will continue to provide updates as things develop.

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.

Frederick Orville "Freddy" Dixon
(August-08-1943 - June-05-2020)

Passed away at home on June 5th, 2020 at the age of 76. Beloved husband of Vlasta (nee Weber). Loving father of Jackie Dixon, Larry (Ali) Dixon and Tomas Weber. Proud grandfather of Danielle Henderson (Jeff Covell), Travis Henderson (Nicole Naqasar), Gabriel and Raven Weber. Predeceased by his parents Orville "Moose" and Jean (nee Hannah) Dixon and his sister Susan Dixon. Freddy was inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000. He was an accomplished musician, showman, author and he was most definitely the happiest when he was entertaining. He had a great love of all animals, he loved his dog Mishka and he cherished his time and friendships with "his people". He will be deeply missed by many family, friends, neighbours and fellow musicians. Due to the recent circumstances of Covid 19, a private funeral with family will be held, followed by a Celebration of Freddy's life at a later date. In memory of Freddy, donations may be made to Mel’s Farm All Animal Rescue (https://www.melsfarm.ca/how-to-help/) or to the Community Living Association of Lanark County.
