For those who have never had the fortune to drive it, the Trans-Canada highway is a long, slow and detailed journey. This route is rarely the fastest, but can be the most memorable way to traverse Canada.
I recently had the fortune to take the wrong turn driving from Toronto to Ottawa and landed myself on this highway. Listening to a CD of an Ottawa afro-funk band, I quickly drew the parallel between Canada’s music industry and one of the world’s longest highways: relaxed and natural, yet constant and strong! Canada’s artists are bred to know that there is a long road that lie ahead.
TRANSCANADA RADIO is proud to celebrate Canada’s current cultural artists and their locations! Traveling across Canada’s vast surface and finding the best of the under and above-ground artists who are rooted in Soul, Funk, Folk, Rock, Reggae, Beats, House, Breaks, Indie and all that afro-Jazz… and where to check them out in your favorite Canadian city!
Pack your bags! We’re going on a road trip!
