ECMA 1996

An archival clip from the 1996 ECMA awards in Charlottetown, PEI, featuring Eric MacEwen, Lennie Gallant, Tara MacLean and Marty Reno paying tribute to Gene MacLellan.

On the Radio

Gene MacLellan seems to be in regular rotation on the new CBC music site.  Turn on the Singer/Sonwriter genre stream at music.cbc.ca and give a listen.  While you’re waiting, you’ll get some Neil Young, Pete Seeger, Tom Russell and Van Morrison.  Fair deal.

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.
