delphinium French songs of immigration (10) RE: French songs of immigration 06 May 03

Un Canadien Errant is a lovely song but it is really about exile, not emmigration - "banni de ses foyers". It was supposedly inspired by the deportation to Australia of those who were captured (and not hung) following the rebellions of 1837-38 in Upper & Lower Canada.

Sorry I can't be helpful.
