Lorne Brown - A Link in the Chain

Lorne Brown

Lorne Brown is a singer of old songs and a teller of old tales whose songs and stories have been gathered over a lifetime of listening and joining in with the great keepers of many traditions.

Drawing on his legendary vast repertoire, Lorne sings and tells us old ballads, family stories, ancient legends and well-loved folktales. In both English and French, he makes us laugh and cry, challenges us to think, surprises us with little known facts – did you know that When You and I Were Young, Maggie is a Canadian song from Hamilton? Lorne takes us fishing on a famous logging river, entertains us with recitations, and has us singing along with his banjo. Lorne intersperses haunting tunes on his alto recorder with lullabies and literary tales, offering a collection of all that he holds dear: family, nature, the moon, the importance of friends, the almost spiritual experience of group singing, a respect for the past, and a love of Canada.
