Scotiabank Backbeat Presents: Canadiana Jam-Along

Join the NMC educators on a trip through the Canadian songbook!

On the first Sunday of each month, we’ll sing and strum along to a new Canadian playlist featuring artists such as Alanis Morrisette, Neil Young, Matthew Good Band, The Weeknd, and so many more!

Maybe singing isn’t your thing? Or maybe you’ve learned an instrument but have no one to play with? We’ve got you covered! Each week we’ll have a fleet of instruments available for those looking to learn, practice, or play along to each song. Whether you’re singing or jamming, no prior knowledge is required and we’ll give you the lyrics and chords for each and every song!

Want to run through the songs on your own first? The playlist for each session will be posted in advance for those looking to listen ahead or practice beforehand, although this is definitely not required.

So come along with us as we dive headfirst into some of your favourite hits!

Playlist for August 7:

  • Sk8er Boi – Avril Lavigne
  • Sundown – Gordon Lightfoot
  • Brother Down – Sam Roberts
  • Love yourself – Justin Bieber
  • When the night feels my song – Bedouin Soundclash
  • I go blind – 5440
