In her classic The Tin Flute, Roy paints a picture of Florentine Lacasse, who finds herself with child after a doomed affair. Trapped by poverty, she marries another man, bound for the war front, who will be happy to call the child his, if he returns. The people, the sense of place, the picture of Montreal’s St-Henri neighbourhood, are all tremendously compelling. This version features some slightly more involved string arranging, beautiful singing by Sienna, and some shots of the actual house one of the characters lives in, down on St. Ambroise street in that picturesque, lyrical quarter of town.  Dave Gossage added a beautiful flute solo as our guest at CBC.
