Her unforgettable "You Were on My Mind" marked her as a first-rate singer, guitarist and songwriter and made her a legend of the folk music world. Since those early days, she has promoted the Canadian roots of folk and country music as a radio and television broadcaster, while continuing to write, record and perform. Her songs tell stories that touch the lives of ordinary Canadians and stand the test of time.
