Alberta Slim (country)

Alberta Slim (February 2, 1910 – November 26, 2005) was a country music singer. Slim was born Eric Charles Edwards in Wiltshire, England, and emigrated with his family to Canada as a child. Slim started a traveling circus in the 1940s which included an elephant who could play harmonica, a singing dog, a chimpanzee on a bicycle, and a horse which Slim claimed could see the future. In 1949, he had his first hit on record, "When It's Apple Blossom Time in Annapolis Valley", released on Gavotte Records. Later, RCA Victor signed him and released songs such as "Waltz Evelina Waltz", "You Say I'm a Fool", "My Annapolis Valley Home", and "It's Too Late to Care".  He continued to perform until he was 93. He died in 2005 at the age of 95 in Surrey, BC.
