General Information
Description
Hugh Hagood Hardy, CM was a Canadian composer, pianist, and vibraphonist. He is best known for the 1975 single, "The Homecoming" originally created as music to a 1972 TV commercial for Salada tea, and for his soundtrack to the Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea films. Born in Angola, Indiana, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Trinity College in the University of Toronto. He also studied music privately in Toronto with Gordon Delamont. In the 1960s he played vibraphone in the bands of Martin Denny, Gigi Gryce, Herbie Mann, and George Shearing. As a performer, Hardy is best known for his performance with Herbie Mann on the latter's 1961 recording At the Village Gate. The session includes the jazz standard "Comin' Home Baby" & the Gershwin classic, "Summertime". This version of "Summertime" was later "covered" by the 90's rock group Sublime in their hit song "Doin' Time." In 1992, he was made a Member of the Order of Canada. In the 1995 provincial election he was the candidate for the Ontario Liberal Party in the riding of York South and faced local MPP and Premier of Ontario Bob Rae.
