Celebrating Gene’s Birthday

Gene MacLellan was born on this day, February 2, in 1938 in a little mining town in northern Quebec.  How about celebrating his birthday with a couple of his songs?.  The first one, Put Your Hand in the Hand, performed at Dorchester Prison in New Brunswick.

And this one, Chet Atkins’ riff on Gene’s song, Snowbird.
