MandolinPaul BS: Is there a 'Canadian' style? (59* d) RE: BS: Is there a 'Canadian' style? 13 Jul 00

Hey Mrr.

Depending upon how strict we would like to be in our definition of "traditional" musical styles, we could go so far as to say that Canada and the US don't have any. It was all brought here from overseas, incorporated with other styles that were brought here, and made into our own.

To answer the original question. I've lived in Ontario all my life, been entertained by MANY Canadian artists, and of course I've heard large amounts of American music. ...and the answer is "Dunno" ...but it is definitely different.

To back up Steven Sellors opinion, above, when I was in Grade 13 English, and we were asked to contrast American & Canadian literature. One girl put up her hand and said, "Canadian literature is depressing. You'd think that nothing good ever happens to any of us."
