Anthony from Sault St. Marie traveled to Burlington to sit at the feet of the great accordionist Snips Walker. Snips taught many people who achieved greatness like vibes player Ben Hundinski, son of the Soo who went on to play with Woody. He wasn’t accepting new students so Anthony moved to Hamilton and worked two jobs, he was resourceful and ready to wait for his turn. He worked at Rath Art Supplies and Dirtengers diaper pick up.  Anthony eventually felt like he was ripped off and wrote Snips a letter complaining about how long he had been waiting for lessons and how many changes he adjusted to just so this opportunity could work in his life.
