Listening To Canadians – The Deep Dark Woods

The Deep Dark Woods are another band out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan that I spent some evenings listening to at Bud’s On Broadway.  This particular song was written for a CBC project in 2009 called The Great Canadian Songquest.  Charlie’s (is coming down) is performed live in this version.  Ah, memories.

 

 

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. Really enjoy them… but never loved this song. Was so disappointed when I first heard it. Was such a great contest CBC had. Was somewhat offended when the band said they had only been at the bar once many years earlier!

    • That’s to bad. I’ve never been there, but I heard it was classic. I kind of agree but I heard it driving home today and had to play it. Good band in general, and while not their best, it has a great story line.

    • Well Silly G, it’s not that surprising that none of the band had been there, considering they don’t live in Regina.

      • Charlie’s closed in 2010. Deep dark woods formed in 2005 I believe. They hardly played in Saskatoon when I lived there. They got pretty big in a hurry. Jack Semple is from Regina and we saw him all the time. Don’t think it matters how often they played there. They wrote a song and it was a good story.

  2. Have to agree with SillyG – good tune, but not great.
    I like the story though.
