From The Library: Early Eastern Canadiana

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.
