Thread Name: Origins: Northwest Passage (Stan Rogers)
Subject: RE: I will take the Northwest Passage!
Several years ago the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) made a 1 hour documentary called "One Warm Line" with Stan performing many of his songs in concert, including his last one at the Kerrville festival in Texas before his tragic flight back to Chicago. The energy in his performances is certainly something to see.

If anyone gets the chance, the annual Canmore Folk Festival (just outside Banff National Park in Alberta) is performed on the Stan Rogers Memorial Stage, and it always ends with an all-performers and audience rendition of "The Mary Ellen Carter"--very moving (even in the pouring rain, as it often is). I remember seeing Stan perform at the Canmore festival long ago.
