Hello! Congratulations Canada, you will be 150 years old this year ~ 2017!!!
On Tuesday, May 30th we will be playing Canadian songs on the 150th day of the 150th year. That’s pretty cool.
Here is our song list for May 30th:
Farewell to Nova Scotia – unknown: folk song attributed to Nova Scotia heritage
Four Strong Winds – written by Ian Tyson; made famous by “Ian and Sylvia”, and also Neil Young
Good Old Hockey Game (PDF) by Stompin’ Tom Connors
Harvest_Moon by Neil Young
If I Had A Million Dollars (C) by the Bare Naked Ladies
I’m Glad I Live In Canada (C) by Bowser and Blue
Oh Canada – uke – NOT the traditional wording “we play our ukes for thee”
Song For The Mira (PDF) – written by Allister McGillivray
Sudbury Saturday Night also by Stompin’ Tom Connors
Summer Vibe by Walk Off the Earth
The Log Driver’s Waltz written by Wade Hemsworth, by the McGarrigle sisters
This Land Is Your Land words re-written by the Travellers
Up On Cripple Creek (C) by THE BAND!!
Wagon Wheel Darius Rucker (G) by Canadian Musician Darius Rucker, formerly of the band Hootie and the Blowfish.
Some of these songs celebrate things distinctly Canadian and other songs are a nod to the East Coast, to Ontario, to country music roots, or just darn fun!
We’re allowed to have fun and to celebrate our nation’s age, culture and heritage. I hope you enjoy!
