Also to be honoured is music promoter Nick Panaseiko, who is to receive the Lifetime Achievement award.

It was earlier announced that the Lifetime Achievement honour will also be given to the late Saul Holiff, who managed Johnny Cash during his formative years.

The class of 2018 was announced at a gathering Friday at the John Kinder Labatt Lounge in the city.

London singer-songwriters Chad Price and Julia Haggerty will host the awards gala April 15 at the London Music Hall. The Jack Richardson London Music Awards’ jazz and classical awards show will be held April 8 at Aeolian Hall.

Earlier named the London Music Awards, the name was changed to honour producer Jack Richardson who was the first Hall of Fame inductee under the new banner in 2004, recognizing the long-time Londoner’s role in encouraging excellence in the local music scene and advocating for education in the field as a Fanshawe College professor. One of his last major public appearances before his death was at the 2011 Jacks gala at the London Music Hall when Richardson was saluted with a standing ovation and fans and friends lined up to chat with him at the gala’s finale.
