This traditional Canadian folk song has been sung around campfires and while paddling canoes for decades and continues to be popular with Boy and Girl Scouts in both Canada and the United States. The beautiful lyrics paint a picture of the authorís woodland aboriginal home in Six Nations, Ontario. This arrangement starts off hauntingly with the melody in the clarinets before moving to a driving, upbeat feel. This folk song arrangement is part of a collection for young band celebrating Canadaís 150th anniversary since joining Confederation.
This live recording features the Rouge River Winds with Pratik Gandhi directing.
