AllMusic Review by

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Radio 2 network launched an unusual contest in which they invited a dozen noted Canadian musicians and asked them each to travel to a different province in that nation and find an outstanding, undiscovered song from a local songwriter. CBC Radio 2's Great Canadian Song Quest presents the 12 songs that became finalists in the competition, each performed by the singer or group that discovered them. Artists include Chantal Kreviazuk, Martha Wainwright, Joel Plaskett, Oh Susanna, Kim Barlow, Catherine MacLellan, and six others.
