'Tis the season, or at least the lights hanging around Oxford Street would suggest so. Unsurprisingly I'm getting a bit homesick for Canada. Doesn't help matters that I spent most of the week doing some federalism work that led me to the CBC archives and their clips from our nutty nation's bizarre contemporary history. When I get feelin' this way, there's only one thing to be done, load up some good Canadian folk music and imagine I'm back at a pub in Ottawa.
Here's Bye Bye Montreal from Newfoundland's Amelia Curran. If you have any favourite Canadian acts (folk or otherwise) you think I should look up, please let me know.
