Eleanor McCain pays tribute to Canadian music in a unique way for Canada's 150th birthday.

Eleanor McCain – Canadian french fry heiress and award-nominated singer arrives at Canada's 150th birthday bash with an unapologetically Canuck project – True North: The Canadian Songbook.

After mining the Canadian music landscape for 32 of our most beloved and recognizable tunes, from Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" to k.d. lang's "Constant Cravings," McCain enlisted orchestras across Canada to rework and perform them.

The project also includes a short documentary and a coffee-table book of Canadian landscapes.
