Uprising Up North


Today I’m simply sharing a photo, a song and some lyrics.

I went to see the Sam Roberts Band at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival last night. Sam Roberts is the kind of artist that inspires you to “kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight”, to quote another Canadian musician (Bruce Cockburn).

He chose to honor Indigenous Day by singing his song “Uprising Down Under”. Below is posted a link to that song, with lyrics.

I hope, if the darkness threatens to swallow up the light you have left, these words and music can be an encouragement, and a reminder that you are never alone.
