Arnie Derksen

Arnie Derksen was on the country music scene in the late 1950s. His roots go back to Northern Canada.

His musical interests as an entertainer back then appear to be quite varied - popl, classical, jazz and of course country.

He started his musical journey in Winnipeg where was featured at the "Rancho Don Carlos", one of the largest night spots in middle Canada at that time. He was said to also have been a regular on the local television stations.

His career took him a bit farther east, to Toronto where he found work at various venues in the area. He was said to have toured all across Canada during those years.

Billboard reported in 1958 that he did a recording session at Bradley's Barn in Nashville, Tennessee. Bobby Helms and Ronnie Self were also at the Barn around the same time.
