This green cotton with yellow piping is for a fine country singer in Prince Edward Island.

Lone Pine refers to the colour, and also to old time country singer Hal “Lone Pine” Breau.

Lone Pine was born in Maine and spent a lot of time in Canada, both in the Maritimes, and in Winnipeg.

One of his signature songs was “Prince Edward Island is Heaven To Me” recorded in 1956 with his band Kountry Karavan.

On Spanish guitar was Hal and Betty Cody’s 15 year old son, Lenny Breau.
