Sometimes I just have to have a massive Canadian fix ...

Lots of anything by Stan Rogers (RIP); two faves:


A smidge of Bruce Cockburn -


Kate & Anna McGarrigle (especially the French stuff)


Of course, anything by Joni, and lots of it:


and a relative newcomer, Kathleen Edwards -

Did somebody say Canadian musicians? (well I already included a few--Dragonette and Wailin' Jennys is 2/3 Canadian)

I guess I've been out of touch w/Canada too long.  Except for Sarah McLachlan and the Cowboy Junkies, never heard of these others.  But then when it reached the US news that Gord Downie had died, it was the first I'd heard of the "Tragically Hip".   frown.gif

Music has gotten so "fragmented."  So many different genres and subgenres, niche audiences, radio doesn't play most of this stuff.  I wouldn't say any of those bands you haven't heard of are exactly popular.

Rhiannon Giddens Carolina Chocolate Drops Live "Leaving Eden"

I recently bought this CD after listening to a good bit of Rhiannon Giddens music: Tomorrow is My Turn. She sings this song more beautifully than Patsy Cline:

Great tip, GB.  up.gif  Just listened to more of her stuff, including the Austin City Limits material.  Interesting that part of her background (per Wikipedia) includes studying opera at Oberlin.

Her voice, rhythm, and stage presence are amazing. Folks around here are less likely to know of her. Quite a bit of her music is cultural/historical of the SE and she apparently did sing at the Obama inaugural. I just recently learned of her through a ravingly positive article about her in a recent Smithsonian Magazine. Glad I checked her music out. I'm sure I'll buy another CD - likely of the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

gb - You might also enjoy Ted Hawkins.  I forget how I discovered him.  I have his Geffen-produced The Next Hundred Years .  I never get tired of listening to it.

Surprised I haven't stumbled onto this singer before.  She's posted a ton of cover songs on you tube, she's all over one of my favorite genres.  Been at it for several years.  I don't know what algorithm you tube uses to suggest videos, seems like they should've showed me her several years ago.  Better late than never.  The best possible compliment I can give this is it almost sounds like the original, and the singer from Within Temptation has an incredible voice.

Speaking of Canadians - these guys tickle my amygdala from time to time:


And you can't go wrong with Corb.

More Canadians.  Young quartet from Toronto.  You don't see very many all female rock bands.  I'd never even heard of them til yesterday, I like their sound.  Coincidentally they are playing in Seattle tonight, don't think I'm going to make it on that short of notice.

Figured I'd post this since I just got back from seeing her in concert.  She did perform this song, although she didn't bring her famous actress buddies with her.
