Okay. Didja know that the following great folk singers all came from Canada?

Ian & Sylvia Tyson

Leonard Cohen

Joni Mitchell

Bruce Cockburn

Gordon Lightfoot

Buffy Sainte-Marie

Stan Rogers

The Band (mostly)

Neil Young (is he a folksinger? Well sometimes.)

Pretty good for a nation that had less than 22 million people at the time.

Bullwinkle is also almost certainly from Canada, and so are Dudley Doright and sweet Nell. I'm not so sure about Snidely Whiplash. I think he may have been from Schenectady...

O Canada, home of the donut shop
Your coffee cup will keep you on the hop
A daily dose...of raw caffeine
To be zapped into your veins
Your teeth will rot...your guts will knot
You'll try to sleep, but in vain
O Canada, coffee and tea
We're all addicted and we're proud to be
O Canada let's raise a cup for thee!

Sing it to the tune of Canada's national anthem...

22 million people sounds like a hell of a lot of people to me. There's 4 million or so in Ireland. And that's a hell of a lot of people too. (And the best music comes from the parts of Ireland with the fewest people.)

That's not in any way knocking Canada, but when it comes to folk music I tend to feel small is beautiful. As witness Newfoundland's contribution. (Or south of the border, as witness Appalachia.)

Is anyone familiar with Aengus Finnan, a singer-songwriter from near Toronto that also does some trad songs? I've been to a couple of his wonderful concerts and have his wonderful CD "Fool's Gold" (he thanks Rick Fielding on the album notes, so obviously he can't be all bad).

The beer on the other hand............"Phantom" has played more there than anywhere else...............yeh, well, skip that...........Lessee now.......You used to have Tim Horton until Dave screwed up............Hey!! You have some weird looking money!!! Interestingly enough, I had some of it when I got back last year and tried to pay with it at Tim Horton's as a joke. They failed to see the humor and wouldn't take it.................Hmmmmmm.....Oh yeah...You did have a boat entered in the America's Cup a few years ago....'Course they had to shovel snow out of it to practice, but that WAS a first for an 12Meter Cup boat (truth)...................But you DO have Jean Larrivee which makes up for Tim Horton's!!!

Now, let's see, how about actors...

William Shatner

Lorne Greene

and that guy in "Naked Gun" Leslie Neilsen, isn't it?

Geez...what a bunch of stiffs! Oh well, at least our musicians are good.

Here's a Canadian content limerick:

Joe Clark had not much of a chin
But don't worry, said Brian to him
I can take up the slack, and lead the attack
Cos mine's long as the road to Berlin

Here's another:

Bob Stanfield could sell underwear
And Trudeau could certainly swear
But Brian Mulroney just gave us the loonie
Aside from a lot of hot air

I can see all the Americans scratching their heads over those...heh! (hint: they are all former prime ministers our would-be prime ministers of Canada)

Robertson Davies, an amazing author, read him if you haven't, nothing quite like him.
We used to drive over to Windsor to get scones, black currant jam, six packs of hard cider, Labatt's, and then we'd drive down to Point Pelee in Lake Erie to fish for smelt all night (and play music and drink homemade blackberry wine)with with the Scottish-American League ruggers. That's how my first guitar got its first scratches, at one of those gatherings, from the belt-buckle of a rather inebriated man who was playing "Scots What Hae" or maybe it was "Donal, whar's yer troosers".
If that ain't content, I dunno what is, eh?

Hi Steve........Oh yeah.....Even right here in little ol' Lancaster we have a Tim Horton's. Dave Thomas (Wendy's--a good Ohio boy)brought them here for reason's unknown to me. I've tried there coffee.........well, it sure is hot anyway.....kinda' like the surface of the sun. Now if you want great coffee, go to White Castle. Don't eat any of the food of course, but the coffee is dynamo-hum!

You are right about the beer of course. To have any appreciation at all for how bad States beer can be, try Iron City when you visit Wheeling. You'll beg for a Bud.

Two of my favourite Toronto acts. Carlos Del Junco, twice named Hohner world Champion in both the Blues and Jazz Categories. Carlos used to have Kevin Breitt in his band, one of the most innovative guitarists I've ever heard. They still play together from time to time. If you get a chance to see Carlos, go. Especially if Kevin is guesting with him.

www.carlosdeljunco.com

The other is Toronto Mainstay Paul James. Paul's show with his band is always energetic and entertaining, but his solo acoustic is remarkable. He covers Robert Johnson, Muddy, Dylan, Bo Diddley etc very well as well as doing a lot of his own material that is deeply rooted in blues. Paul has played with Bob Dylan on several occasions.

www.seen.com/paul.james

'Spaw, I've always said that there's no accounting for taste or lack thereof, but I didn't mind Iron City and I like the Green Death, Rolling Rock. Bud on the other hand... Any Chance of Blueclickythinging the above two sites for me?

I don't think I saw The Guess Who mentioned. In the early seventies they were the best selling band in the world for a while.

I'm a big fan of Tim Horton's Coffee. I like my coffee strong and I usually find the coffee in the U.S. brewed too weak for my taste. But it seems that that's the way you guys like it. Perhaps we need stronger coffee to recover from our stronger beer.

I'm surprised by how many fellow Canucks don't know who Tim Horton was, they only know his name from the Donut shops. Tim was probably the finest Defenceman in the N.H.L in the sixties right up until a certain Robert Gordon Orr burst upon the scene. He was a mainstay on the Sixties Toronto Maple Leaf dynasty, the last Toronto team to win the Stanley Cup. Of course, this year's team will be the next Toronto team to win it.

Oh yeah and speaking of the sixties Leafs, how about Johhny Bower and "Honky the Christmas Goose" or "Clear the Track, Here comes Shack"
