The Cremation of Sam McGeeChristine Hanson – The Cremation of Sam McGee
The Cremation of Sam McGee was featured on Andy Donnelly's Celtic Show on CKUA. Click HERE for more information on Christine's recording.
Click
HERE to purchase the album

Christine emerged triumphant from a very long fistfight sporting a Pinteresque keeker applied in instalments during her formative years. She then decided to build a cathedral and could have used film, paint or the printed word, but she chose music and went off with Sam McGee to fight amongst the Northern Lights. She rose up twinkling from that scrap and her work is sublime. These delights are the first of many from a great artist.
