Show 328 – Canada Day

posted in: Past Shows

In honor of Canada Day on July 1st, Katie and Joe put together some tracks from our good neighbors to the north. Just like Celtic music in the US, players evolve and develop a sound unique to each region. Fiddle players from Cape Breton sound markedly different than players from Quebec, Ontario, or British Columbia. With such a rich selection from which to select, it was tough to choose from all the extraordinary Canadian musicians.

The Canadian artists this week: Sophie & Fiachra; Justin Thériault, Kyle Burghout, & Susan Toman; The Dardanelles; Mary Beth Carty; Stéphanie Labbé & Francois Couture; Glengarry Bhoys; Le Vent du Nord; Great Big Sea; Ann Gray; NUA; Claire Boucher; Genticorum; Kierah; and Natalie MacMaster.

The FairPlé score this week: 43
