    Generally, folk music has remained simple enough that just about anyone with a guitar, a violin, or some other basic musical accompaniment can easily learn and present a wide variety of songs. To this day, it remains music to be played, and enjoyed, by "folks" everywhere. There are many folk music clubs throughout Canada. Dani Atkinson wrote me I spent several years in Quebec as a kid. While I was there, somebody gave me a picture book and an accompanying tape of French/French-Canadian folk songs. Both book and tape have since disappeared, but I remember some of the tunes, and I recently hunted up the lyrics to refresh them [ ].

    Chants of the Inuit, ballads of French settlers, battle tunes of the British, and songs of Canadian self-rule: singer Alan Mills combines all four to present a rich tapestry of Canadian history in music. Extensive liner notes with full lyrics accompany this collection, which includes and expands. The album, which was originally released by Monitor Records in , features Zelkin and Denise Bérard performing modern arrangements of French-Canadian folk music, with instrumental accompaniment. The liner notes include both the French lyrics and Zelkin's commentary in English.
