"When Catherine McKinnon first sang 'Farewell to Nova Scotia' on Singalong Jubilee, the CBC switchboard lit up. In the words of Singalong director Manny Pittson, 'The folksong was upon us. The phenomenal popularity of this CBC Halifax show, first broadcast in 1961, has never been forgotten. During its 13-year run it helped launch new young talent into the music scene, including Anne Murray, Shirley Eikhard and Catherine McKinnon. It's no surprise that out of this powerhouse of talent grew the phenomenon of East Coast music.

This tapestry of memories is woven from interviews with performers, production personnel and technicians. They look back to the days and nights spent on the Singalong set. They recall the camaraderie, the joy of making music together, their colleagues' idiosyncrasies, the sadnesses and the crazy jokes they played on one another. In this book you will meet the Singalong family as they recount their early careers and the fate of the show after CBC's unpopular decision to sideline it, in spite of its popularity." - from the rear cover.
