Musical Monday - Oscar Brand(1997)

Oscar Brand was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1920.  He moved to the United States and became a huge part of the folk music era of the 1960's.  There are some really fun YouTube videos of Oscar Brand at a coffee house and one with a very young Bob Dylan.  He wrote Something to Sing About which includes all of Canada in the lyrics.  We are going to sing it at the Canada 150 Bash July 1.  However, remember he moved to the U. S. so here he is singing the American version he wrote.  I think you will agree that we like the Canadian version best.
