Whiskey Jack & Special Guests



“This great country kept me inspired with its beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world.” - Stompin’ Tom’s Last Message

C A-N A-D A
Tell me, what's a Douglas Fir?
C A-N A-D A
Bet you never heard a Bobcat purr
C A-N A-D A
Have you ever seen a Lobster crawl?
In Canada we get to see them all

C A-N A-D A
Have you ever heard a Maple creak?
C A-N A-D A
Bet you never seen a Mountain peak.
C A-N A-D A
In the land of the big snowball
In Canada we get to see them all

Lyrics from Stompin’ Tom’s song, Cross Canada

There never was a Canadian quite like Stompin’ Tom Connors.  The lad from Skinner’s Pond, P.E.I. became a Canadian legend who spent his life touring our country and singing, in his own unique way, about the pleasures of being Canadian.

That spirit and those songs are what our Salute to Stompin’ Tom Connors celebrates, with Whiskey Jack, the band that crisscrossed the country with him, along with a rare singing appearance by Tom’s wife, Lena Connors and special guest, Cindy Church, a genuine fan of Tom and the performer whom Ian Tyson called 'the best female singer in the land'.

Join us, as Tom would say, for a party “…to keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future.”
