The Northwest Passage - Stan Rogers

Post By Michael Faulkner

Stan Rogers was a Canadian folk singer and songwriter, born in Hamilton, Ontario. There's a list of great songs Rogers was able to release before his tragic death back in 1983. One song stands out as his best, and that is "Northwest Passage". This song has been referred to as one of Canada's unofficial anthems, and upon hearing the first few seconds of the song you can see why. Rogers' voice creates an emotion inside that makes you want to join in with him so you can both chant the lyrics wholeheartedly; and who doesn't like a song that does that to you?!
