I am originally from New York City, though Canada has been my home since 1969. But that wasn't my first time in Canada. In 1963, through a quirk, I got a ride to Toronto and attended the Mariposa folk festival. I fell in love with Canada on that trip. At that time I had no idea that Folkways had the largest collection of Canadian music available in the world. I don't think it is still true, but there are well over a hundred Folkways records that feature Canada and Canadians. In this show we explore them.
