Canadian Music; More Than You Know

Like most people I am aware that there have been many Canadian success stories in the music industry in many different genres. The likes of Bryan Adams, Shania Twain, Burton Cummings and Celine Dion are household names and to most Canadians, are known to be Canadians.

However, we all know there are many more but,  when I started searching for a list I was incredibly surprised at just how many there have been.  Do you remember Oscar Peterson, Wilf Carter and Hank Snow? How about Rush, Loverboy and Martina McBride? Or there is The Tea Party, the Crash Test Dummies and Our Lady Peace. We all know about Nickleback and Avril Lavigne but, what about Billy Talent, Arcade Fire and Feist?

Man, we are one talented country. I have only scraped the surface, there are hundreds more. For a comprehensive listing please check Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Canada

Enjoy the memories.
