rich r Songs from British Columbia. Help & Thanks (34) RE: Songs from British Columbia. Help & Thanks 22 Jul 99


I remember one from some years ago called "when the boats (ships?) go down (sail in?) to Vancouver" or something like that. It was done by Andrew Calhoun. I may have it on tape if you want me to look.

There are also a couple of labor songs, "Where The Fraser River Flows" by Joe Hill about labor problems on the Canadian Northern Railway, and also "Bowsers' Seventy-Twa" which is about the 1912-1914 coal mine strikes on Vancouver Island.

Finally a song by Sally Rogers "WHERE THE COHO FLASH SILVER" which is about fishing off BC.
