It could be a songwriter, but it doesn't have to be.
I have to think about this one myself. I'll post my answer later.

I would say Hank Snow and Wilf Carter,both dead now but their music lives on.That was back in the days when country was real country,not todays pop country.

I sent you an email a few days ago,did you get it.


The more you taste the bitterness of defeat, the sweeter final victory will be

May the flowers of love forever bloom in your garden of life

there was a band a few years back that wrote some of the most creative stuff they were ahead of their time and actually got started in europe because of their style of music the band was Saga and their early recordings still catch my immagination.

I guess one would be Neil Peart from RUSH.
Gordon Lightfoot another.
Bryan Adams is one of the most successful Canadian songwriters.
I'll keep thinking!

There is one name missing here...or maybe its just me thats a huge fan...

Stompin Tom Conners, while technically not a great musician I feel he promoted Canadian pride better than anyone.

Also Dave Gunning from Pictou is a great, singer songwriter and is on his way to the top...

Ditto for Sarah McLachlan. She's the only anglophone Canadian artist I can think of off the top of my head.

I'm probably in a tiny minority here, but I also listen to French Canadian artists. I'm not as familiar with French Canadian music as I am with other French music, but I do have a favorite artist: Jean-François Breau.

He hasn't released many albums but I love his music. I heard his song "Tu me manques" (I miss you) while I was in Quebec a few years ago on vacation and had to get it. I eventually found the album and enjoyed the whole thing.

I couldn't find "Tu me manques" on iTunes but I did find this one. You don't have to speak French to enjoy the song. smile

Jean-François Breau - Ainsi soit-il


English/French piano/electronic singer/songwriter from Virginia. Influences include Charlotte Martin, Kate Bush, Pet Shop Boys, and Mylène Farmer.

There's a Canadian bluegrass band I like called the Spinney Brothers (Rick Spinney on banjo and Allan Spinney on guitar) and a guy called Sean Cyr, who I found on ReverbNation and has some good French-language songs. Also like Joni Mitchell (have to, seeing as I was conceived to Big Yellow Taxi).

Oh my! I posted this 11 years ago, and now I'm back to keep it going. It's good to be back. I'm glad the Canadian Wing still exists here at JPF, even though it's not too active. I have only recently began to appreciate the talents of the late and great Stan Rogers. So I'll add him to our list of great Canadian musicians.

Just Plain Quotes
"Just Plain Folks is like a plow. A plow is a tool that can be used to help feed thousands of hungry people. But there are two groups of people on the planet. One group of people realizes that for the plow to help feed people, they must actually USE the plow to prepare the field to grow the food to feed the people. The second group of people are the ones who stand and stare at the plow and wait for the food to drop out of it. Of course that group is much smaller because those people all eventually starve to death." –Brian Austin Whitney
