BC Songbook is a record of life in this precious coastal land: from the significance of fishing, mining, trucking and log-salvaging, to the joy and beauty of the setting.
This collection of traditional and contemporary songs of Canada’s west coast combines songs we have sung over a number of years with some that are newly added. All are from and about our province. We hope they bring a sense of what life here has been for those who came before us as well as the current experience.
The album’s stunning cover art is from “Road to the Cariboo”, a mixed media on canvas work by Wells, BC artist, Claire Kujundzic.
