From the Library…Canadian Folk

Today Radio Riel fea­tures the folk music of the Cana­di­ans in prepa­ra­tion for tonight’s live Book Launch event for “The Gold­en Leg: And Oth­er Ghost­ly Camp­fire Tales” by Dale Jarvis (Gilbert Sap­wood in SL). The music fea­tured today is as diverse as the peo­ple of Cana­da, you will hear folk music from Native Cana­di­ans, French Cana­di­ans, Irish Cana­di­ans and Scot­tish Cana­di­ans, as well as music from more famous, con­tem­po­rary artists such as Joni Mitchell and Gor­don Light­foot.

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Cale­don Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Sec­ond Life ref­er­ence libraries in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Cale­don Library Web site, or one of their loca­tions in-world.

You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at, or sim­ply vis­it any Cale­don Library branch in-world and press Play on your embed­ded music play­er.

    what a mag­nif­i­cent pro­gramme today! I knew quite a few of the tracks, but the real mar­vels were the hid­den gems, like the solo unac­com­pa­nied song about all the men leav­ing the woman in Saskatchewan, the New­found­land anti-con­fed­er­a­cy song, and the guy imi­tat­ing ani­mals. Maybe we should include some Vinyl Café mate­r­i­al in a future pro­gramme. This was real­ly a clas­sic day. Thanks!
