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.
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.
