Gord Downie and Jann Arden - Canadian music celebrated and loved

I worked from home on Wednesday. It was highly productive. It was also a day of music. 

Gord Downie, lead singer of the Tragically Hip, died. He was only 53 years of age. He succumbed to brain cancer. He will be missed.

His music represents Canada. It is Canada.

I then went to see Jann Arden in concert tonight. I have seen her more than any other singer or group in concert. She is so funny. I love her songs and her voice. She, too, is Canadian. A true gem.

Although things change, my love for their music never ceases.

I am currently listening to a tribute to Gord Downie and his band. So good.


  1. Sorry about Gord sad. Happy you had a productive day working from home. I'll have to go out to YouTube and see if I can listen to either one of these performers.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Yes, please do check out their music. Jann Arden has a live album. If you do have a chance to watch parts of that, you can see just how funny she is.

      Gord has a book of poetry. Jann also has a few books that she has written. They are great, too.
