Canada Is For Kids: Volume 2

Canada Is For Kids: Volume 2
Michael Mitchell

Michael Mitchell is a premier source of authentic Canadian music. Drawing from his research of Canadiana, Michael presents traditional songs, as well as his original music, accurately and beautifully.

Au chante de l'Alouette
-- A traditional French Canadian voyageur and coureur de bois song.
Where the Coho Flash Silver -- A west coast salmon trawler's quest for those famous silver fish.
We're All Looking for a Dinosaur -- Michael wrote this one for Sesame Street about the dinosaurs that used to roam this land;
Coal Town Road -- About the hard life of coal miners and the 'pit ponies' that used to work beside them.
Un Canadien Errant -- An exquisitely orchestrated and mournful tune about the MacKenzie - Papineau Rebellion of 1837.
Red River Cart Song -- The pioneer trek to Edmonton along the Calgary Trail.
Black Fly Song by Wade Hemsworth -- Seen on a National Film Board vignette about the nasty little beasts that inhabit North Ontario.
Jack Was Every Inch a Sailor -- Another rousing Newfoundland favourite.
Water -- Michael wrote this one for what we consider 'good' water and 'bad' water in this country.
Land of the Silver Birch -- A paddling song with a more aboriginal perspective.
Maple Sugar Time -- Michael wrote this about a favourite Eastern Canadian pastime -- gathering up the maple syrup and having fun at a traditional cabane a sucre.
Headed for Canada -- The story of an Irish immigrant sailing to Canada to escape the hardships of his native home.
Little Old Sod Shanty -- A prairie sod-buster's life on a government claim.
