From The Library: Early Eastern Canadiana

in Daily Programme

by rieladmin on Sunday, 23 November, 2008

Red Caliber presents a program of Canadian folk music with a strong French and Maritime flavor.

The Eastern region of the Maritime provinces was the first place in North America to be settled by Europeans, starting with the Vikings, years before Columbus discovered South America. The northwestern region now known as Quebec was settled years later, as people moved inland to populate the interior of the country.

These regions are steeped in tradition, storytelling and lore, whether it be tales of harsh living conditions, pirate adventures, or memories of the simple life of living close to the land and the sea.

Caliber has compiled a mix of the traditional and the modern, a showcase and celebration of this history and heritage.

From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. Today's program was produced by Red Caliber.
