    How could I have forgotten the Rheos. I was even almost neighbours with Tim for a year or so.

    Cheers,

    Two of my favorite bands ever. Matthew Good Band especially is criminally under appreciated in the US. Saw him in Chicago about a decade ago with like 200 people in attendance. It was awesome.

    Wife is mad I didn't put Ron Sexsmith in there. She adores him... I think he's the possibly most misplaced bluesman in history. So sad, he couldn't even muster up enough energy to learn the blues. So melancholy, his music makes even the most down-and-out feel straight up blessed.

    Maybe that's why my wife digs him?

    Pretty much mine as well but I've never followed Jan Arden. I'll add Gordon Lightfoot, Ann Murray and Gene MacLellan.

    Rush & the Tragically Hip & Neil Young, yes. But some others that might not otherwise get a mention:

    Sloan. Fantastic songwriters.


    This is probably too hardcore for most, but my all-time favourite band, Propagandhi, from Winnipeg. Powerful and crazy talented.


    Their original bassist went on to found the (much mellower) Weakerthans


    Groovy Aardvark was great for mixing Quebecois folk with hard rock:
    .

    Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs are fun... like a punk Thin Lizzy


    I could go on....Thanks for the thread!

    I quite honestly have no idea what countries musicians are from.
