Be Good Tanyas – Littlest Birds

The Be Good Tanyas trio of lovely ladies combined a mixture of traditional, bluegrass, country and sometimes straight rock and roll to create the album Blue Horse, which is one of my favourite CD’s of all time. It’s impossible to listen to this collection of songs without becoming infected with a case of toe-tapping euphoria […]

Northey Valenzuela – Not A Lot Going On (Corner Gas Theme Full Extended Version)

Sung by the Mountain City Four (which included Kate and Anna McGarrigle), it is the tale […]

Joe, our hero, takes the stage and explains what life in Canada is really like, leading to him proudly shouting to the crowd “I Am Canadian!”, in this Molson’s […]
