Stompin' Tom Connors: Canadian Folk Hero

The World

Canadian country-folk musician Stompin' Tom Connors passed away this week.

He was a music legend in Canada.

He wrote hundreds of songs and sold nearly four million albums.

But unlike most Canadian musicians, he wasn't interested in courting American fans.

The World's Andrea Crossan has this remembrance of Stompin' Tom.
