10 Best Canadian Musical Acts of All Time
Page 2 of 2
5. The Band (Toronto, Ontario)
They're 4/5 Canadian, but it was the lone American, Levon Helm, who I heard play "The Weight" last year.
Recommended album: Music From Big Pink
4. Joni Mitchell (Fort Macleod, Alberta)
Joni appears on the list by virtue of her Western Canadian birth and busking in Toronto.
Recommended album: Blue
3. Arcade Fire (Montreal, Quebec)
Arcade Fire ahead of Joni Mitchell and The Band after just two albums? Only because they’re arguably the best band to emerge so far in the 21st century.
Recommended album: Funeral
2. Leonard Cohen (Montreal, Quebec)
The #6 living songwriter according to Paste.
Recommended album: More Best of Leonard Cohen
1. Neil Young (Toronto, Ontario)

Recommended album: Harvest
