  • Spirit of Canada - Home For A Rest



    On November 19, 2017 close to 50 of Canada’s most celebrated musicians gathered at the legendary Commodore Ballroom to help a dear friend-- John Mann, singer for Spirit of the West.

    John has Early-onset Alzheimer's which demands incredible resources, and the musical community rallied for an amazing show of support in one unforgettable night of music and love.

    A makeshift studio was assembled in the building to record this song on the spot as a memento of the gathering and to help raise funds for John's continuing care.

    This is for John.

    This special recording of Home For A Rest was performed by:
    Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo
    Sarah McLachlan
    Alan Doyle
    Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies
    Spirit Kids
    Barney & Dustin Bentall
    Colin James
    Craig Northey and The Odds
    Shari Ulrich
    Jim Byrnes
    Kendel Carson
    Daniel Lapp
    Spirit of the West with Cory Tetford, Shehab Illyas & Kris MacFarlane

  • Home For a Rest The Redhills Covid 19 Lockdown video


    This is a video we recorded while spread over 160 square miles of the midlands of England.
    Nate heard this song Home for a Rest when he was out in Canada and fell in love with it. Apparently it's the alternative Canadian National Anthem . We thought it was a lot of fun and we used it to test -bed the idea of recording new material from our homes. The song is by John Mann and Geoffrey Kelly and was recorded as a massive hit by the band Spirit of the West after doing a greasy spoon tour of the UK. The diddly tunes used are Castle Kelly The Glass of Beer and The Swallow's Tail. Monies from any ads you see are going to the copyright holders.

    In the spirit of St Patricks Day, I decided to cover a classic Canadian song that screams green beer. It's not only a great fit for this weekend, but it's also just a great song, and I would be silly not to cover it.
    I hope you enjoy it, and that you found some time for green eggs and ham this weekend
