 Folks, it is with great sadness and heavy heavy hearts that we receive and pass on to you, the news of the passing of the Legendary Canadian Icon, Stompin' Tom Connors.

Stompin' Tom has been one of our greatest influences and inspirations. We were raised on this man's music, maybe more so than any other.

Tom passed away yesterday at the age of 77.

He wanted to pass along these words:

"Hello friends, I want all my fans, past, present, or future, to know that without you, there would have not been any Stompin' Tom."

"It was a long hard bumpy road, but this great country kept me inspired with it's beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world."

"I must now pass the torch, to all of you, to help keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future."

"I humbly thank you all, one last time, for allowing me in your homes, I hope I continue to bring a little bit of cheer into your lives from the work I have done."

This is a fabulous full concert at Toronto's legendary Horse Shoe Tavern, 1974. 

Spend some time with it folks.
