A CBC Concert on Demand
The Travellers formed in 1953 and were one of Canada's premier folk music acts for decades afterward. Jerry Gray - the group's lead singer, banjo player, and lone remaining founding member - has known Pete Seeger for 60 years. In fact, it was Seeger who suggested The Travellers do a Canadian version of Woody Guthrie's song, "This Land Is Your Land." It became their biggest hit.
Joining the current lineup of The Travellers for this event are Ken Whiteley, Paul Mills and Joanne Crabtree.
