Did the Olympics give you a taste for top-tier Canadian folk-rock music?

You can win a four-pack of tickets to see and hear Great Big Sea on March 18 when it treks from Newfoundland to the Vogue. Give a listen to the band here, then create a post, below, naming  your favorite Canadian person, place or thing. I'll pick one winner at random.

  • It's all good
    Everything Canadian is great, but I'd have to say one of my favorites is Anne of Green Gables and Prince Edward Island.
  • O Ontario!
    Why, the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, of course! Of many, many fine experiences there, to me one of the highlights has to have been their Duchess of Malfi from three or four seasons ago.
  • Canadian music...
    Some of my favorite Canadians would have to be the Barenaked Ladies. I've been a fan of theirs for years, and they opened me up to a lot of other great Canadian bands...
    including Great Big Sea!
  • Breathtaking
    The Windsor Ballet.
  • Canadian....
    I would have to say Tom Green's a pretty funny guy.
  • Spin the Black Circle
    I enjoy The Vinyl Cafe w Stuart McLean.
  • Canadian FBOs
    My husband is a pilot and says that the FBOs he visit always have very polite and helpful employees. He also rates the Canadian Customs employees very high (much higher than the U.S. Customs people.)
  • Rush and Gordon Lightfoot
    Although they are from different genres of music, I am a big fan of both the rock band Rush as well as singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot.
  • It's an experience
    Floating on a boat, fishing for walleye on Black Lake while drinking a Labatt's Blue and listening to a little Neil Young. I need a vacation...
  • Oh Canada!
    My favorite Canadian thing is Jim Carrey!
  • Mike Meyer
    Thanks for Wayne and Austin Powers, Canada!
  • Funny Guys
    Both Mike Myers and Jim Carrey are hilarious!
  • Canada the beautiful
    Glorious lakes and waterways!
  • PEI
    Prince Edward Island
  • Michael Buble
    Can't get enough of the crooner.
  • Favorite Canadian
    Bacon. Just kidding! I have to go with Mike Myers (not the scary one from Halloween). He's very funny. Love the Austin Powers movies.
  • Barenaked Ladies
    If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you some art...a Picasso or a Garfunkel. Who doesn't LOVE Barenaked Ladies?!? (I mean the musical group, but I'm sure people appreciate the other kind, too.)
  • So many thing to like
    But since I must choose on make it Gordon Lightfoot
  • RUSH an epoch in music
    Lou, epoch
    Without a doubt the Canadian rock band Rush is my favorite thing about Canada. Rush has been creating and evolving their music since 1968. Their musical brilliance has influenced masses of musicians worldwide and has been a significant influence to every genre of music as we know it today.
  • Oh, Canada!
    Lake of the Woods
  • Oh Nell Fenwick!
    Dudley Do-right - need I say more.
  • As If...
    Duh...Paul Schaeffer.
  • Canadian Faves
    Lake Louise and the surrounding glaciers near Banff is the most beautiful place on earth. Truly, truly, breathtaking and a piece of heaven on earth.
  • tickets???
    My favorite Canadian would have to be Michael J Fox, not only do I love him as an actor but admire him for his courage and strength!!!!
  • Music, people..
    some of my favorite bands are Canadian (Great Big Sea being high on the list, along with the Paperboys, Glengarry Bhoys, BNL...) and I'm fascinated by Curling as a sport, but I have to say the people. I live in Columbus, OH and the general friendliness of people when I'm in Canada leaves me slightly bemused. The first time someone offered to help me when I was lost I was half expecting them to jump me b/c that's what it's like here. But they were honestly just trying to help. People on the street actually look you in the eye and SMILE!

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
