R.I.P. Stompin' Tom Connors

Stompin’ Tom Connors, Canadian Singer, Dies at 77


A true Canadian icon. If you’re not Canadian or aren’t too familiar with our country’s sort-of-like-the-US-but-yet-not culture, watching that video you might think he’s a relative unknown or just known in rural or folk circles. However, he is a national figure of the highest order… there’s not a soul in Canada (well, except for some wee kids here and there) who doesn’t know Stompin’ Tom.

Thanks for the music, Tom!
