RIP Stompin’ Tom

Today, Canada lost another legend. Stompin’ Tom, best known for his hit “The Hockey Song“, died today of natural causes at the age of  77. He is one of Canada’s most prolific artists composing songs about mainly native Canada, such as the Nickel in Sudbury, ON and the Potato Farmers in PEI. He garnered the name “Stompin’ Tom” from tapping his boot on a wooden board he use to bring on stage to the rhythm that he was playing. Needless to say this folk singer may be gone, but he certainly will not be forgotten.
