    Indeed Myles! "The Hip" as they are affectionately known to their fans are Canada's band.....they're troubadours with Gord Downie their poet and interpreter. I had tickets to see them in Calgary last year, but I had to sell them as I couldn't make it in time. They love to perform live and are doing so again in support of their new album in June, despite Gord's unfortunate situation. Hopefully I can secure tickets.

    Here is a tune called "Bobcaygeon"...a little town north of Toronto in the Muskokas (beautiful country).

      Most people outside of Canada think of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen as some of the best Canadian talent about (and not unjustifiably so), but no one represented Canada through his lyrics better than Gord Downie. He truly is the quintessential Canadian Poet Laureate.

      Godspeed Gord!
