Music On
A singing and fiddling musical tour of the forests and waterways of Canada
  Original and traditional tunes
reflecting the heritage and history
of the Great Lakes region
  Songs of the lumberjacks  
  great lakes sailors  
  & dynamic peoples of early Canada...  
  Shanty songs and rollicking
"come-all-ye" story-songs
  from Canadian tall ships and
logging camps of the 1800's
  An exciting show for festivals, events and concerts      
  In the character of the pioneers they sing about,      
  will have your crowd singing and clapping along.
