Country singer Stompin Tom Connors died on March…

Country singer Stompin Tom Connors died on March 6, 2013. Why would I want to write about this? Well, my first introduction to him was his song "Bud the Spud", when I got married in the mid seventies.

I found his songs corny, but also folksy. To learn more about Stompin Tom listen to the tribute show that aired on CBC's Q program . Listening to the show, I learned how prolific a song writer Tom Connors was and how each song was a little story about life in Canada. What could be more Canadian that "Hockey Night" and Stompin Tom's "Hockey Song" captures it perfectly.

After almost 40 years in Canada, I have become a Canadian and am proud of it.
