This musical documentary proves to the dubious American public that there is more to Canadian culture than comedy and ice hockey. TOWER OF SONG is an exploration of the huge, somewhat enigmatic country that sits over the United States. Focusing on the 30 Canadian musicians who are in the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame--a diverse array of artists including Joni Mitchell, Paul Anka, The Guess Who, Neil Young, and classical pianist Glenn Gould--this television special explores each artist in the context of their homeland. A highly original film, TOWER OF SONG shows off a country as multi-layered and beautiful as the music its inhabitants make.
