Rating: 0 vote(s).


A book that relives the folksong era of the Sixties and Seventies, including acclaimed Canadian performers Anne Murray, Catherine McKinnon, Shirley Eikhard and many more.


One of the most popular television shows ever aired by CBC television was produced in Halifax and relied on amateur local talent. From its first broadcast in 1961, Singalong Jubilee was an immediate success.
Internationally renowned singer Anne Murray made her debut on Singalong, as did Shirley Eikhard, Catherine McKinnon and Clary Croft.
This illustrated book includes first-person accounts from more than 20 people who were involved in the production of the show. From their stories we learn about all the people who performed and assisted in the show. Photographs of the cast and the support staff offer a glimpse back to the early days of television production.
Songs that have become folk music icons were first heard on Singalong including Gene MacLellan's "Put Your Hand in the Hand" and the Anne Murray signature song, "Snowbird."
Remembering Singalong Jubilee is the first book to capture the personal memories of the early days in the east
coast music scene from some of Canada's best loved professionals.

"One of this fall's most important Atlantic Canadian books ... Deceptively light and sunny, Remembering Singalong Jubilee is an essential volume for anyone who wants to understand the modern roots of Atlantic Canada's wonderfully rich and enduring musical culture."

- Ron Foley Macdonald

"Ernest J. Dick's Remembering Singalong Jubilee is a fascinating and well-illustrated look at a program that shaped both Canada's music and television scenes. Given the musical legacy of the program, the reminiscences scattered throughout the book read like a Who's Who of Canadian Music."
