Maria Dunn: ‘Can You Blame the Poor Miner?’

The picture isn’t that good but the music is wonderful. This is Edmonton’s own Maria Dunn, a national treasure in my opinion, with a song about coal miners in the Crowsnest Pass in the early part of the 20th century. If you’ve never heard Maria before, google her, and then do yourself a favour and buy every CD she’s ever recorded. I’ll help you: here’s her website.
