About this program

Explore the songs and characters that came to this country from the 1500s to the 1900s. Join Eleanor with body gestures and sing along for a memorable discovery of newcomers across 4 centuries. Delve into the stories of heartsick settlers inspired by the lands they knew, as they learnt to live in these fields of rock and snow. Each song will bring you a world of experience as you listen closely to the ordinary people who came to Canada. Lyrics and recordings of the songs are available for use before or after the session.
