10 Provinces Special: Blue Rodeo

Today we continue our series of features about popular Canadian bands that folks outside of our country may not be as familiar with. Another province post will be up later today. Which one will it be?

Blue Rodeo are one of Canada’s most successful alt-country-rock bands. They released their first album Outskirts in 1987 and have since released nine other studio albums, a live album, a greatest hits album, a DVD, and a line of urban clothing (just kidding). The three remaining original members are Jim Cuddy (guitar/vocals), Greg Keelor (guitar/vocals), and Bazil Donovan (bass). A whole string of other members have covered drums and keys since the band formed. On top of their lengthy careers with the band, Cuddy and Keelor have both also released well-received solo albums. Here are a few of my favorite Blue Rodeo songs. Enjoy!
