We are so sad to hear about the passing of one of our dear friends and road brothers in arms, Ilmars Kuras.
Ilmars was with Streetheart during the early 80’s and he was much loved by everyone for his laid back attitude and big laugh. Always a great guy on the road he was one of the kindest people you could know.
He truly was a gentle giant with an even bigger heart.
We know he will be missed by many within the Winnipeg music community who knew him and who worked with him over the years.
Our sincere condolences go out to all of Ilmars’ family and loved ones.
