Information/Write-up

A recording of original songs and guitar solos.

Chris Rawlings has been around for a long time and in this business that means you have to be both good and multitalented. In fact Chris does so many things well that it's easy to think there is more than one of him. He's probably best known as a singer songwriter who used to be very much part of the Montréal folk music scene, but he's also released an album of Canadian recorder quartets. In 1981 he wrote songs and music for five National Film Board filmstrips on Canadian labour history, chronicling events like the Regina massacre and people like Vancouver Island's own Ginger Goodwin ("a worker's friend").

Chris is equally at home in English and French with traditional songs and his own contemporary compositions, love songs and songs for kids, and oh yes, he can sing The Rime of the Ancient Mariner in its entirety. (This takes 50 minutes, so don't get him started unless you've got some time.) Chris has performed from the Queen Charlotte Islands to Bulgaria.
