Jimmy Arthur Ordge was born and raised in the Donalda area where he started picking and playing for school house dances. Jim moved to Edmonton in his teens and was a regular on "Old Dad Taylor's Jubilee Jamboree."
Jimmy did shows and dance jobs around the area and in the early 50's, he started doing radio and television shows. While playing a club in Whitehorse, he met Al Oster who wrote Jimmy's first hit, "Irena Cheyene." "Irena" won him his first Moffat Award. Jim's other big hits include "Muk Tuk Annie" and "Hershel's Hemi Half-ton." When country music hit a decline for a few years, Jimmy diversified and bought himself a business that keeps him busy when not entertaining.
