The quality of the songs isn’t as good as the CD or vinyl; hopefully this will inspire you to BUY THE CD so you can hear the songs better.

I’ve provided what radio insiders call a “scope” of the broadcast- the talking is presented with beginnings & ends of the songs only.

Thanks to John Eller for approving this. Photos by Patty DuBois.

It kinda blows my mind that there were Frenchmen canoeing around central North America almost 200 years before The USA was created, and way more than 200 years before Canada! AND– they sung as they paddled. Here are there songs; of course this album ends with a rousing rendition of “Alouette”. Any record that has a map inside that includes a 1000-mile canoe trip route to help tell the story always wins with me.
