Canadian Folk Classics - 2021
Being Released 30th July 2021
Canadian patriotism is very important to Doug and involves an attachment of Canadians to their homeland and culture through music.
Canadian Nationalism has a unique and distinct culture from a wide multicultural base of singers, songwriters, entertainers and recording artists from coast to coast. Doug is very assertive that there is One Canada or One Nation. Canadians can express multiple identities within a Canadian identity.
Canadian Identity can be difficult to identify with so many cultures within one country with one of the largest land masses on the planet earth. As stated in the lyrics of "Something To Sing About", Canada is "A land that's still young, with a ballad that's still unsung". Doug hopes to focus on Canadian Patriotism and National Pride through Canadian music and a promise of great things to come.
