Classic Canadian Songs from Smithsonian Folkways

We established a number of criteria for selecting our songs. We chose songs handed down from the past and songs newly made; songs that celebrate the diversity of traditions, performers, and collectors represented on the Canadian albums; songs of historical, social, political, cultural, and aesthetic importance in local, regional, and national contexts; songs that express our values; songs that reflect the vast Canadian landscape, our sense of place, and our ties to land and sea; and, songs that reveal the resourcefulness with which Aboriginal and immigrant peoples alike met the challenges of geography and climate, eked out an existence in an often inhospitable land, coped with isolation and loneliness, balanced rugged individualism with the desire to belong, forged lives, and built communities.
