Frenchtown - work in progress
Southern Ontario is my mom's home region. She grew up in Welland, where there is a francophone neighbourhood called Frenchtown, and used to ride her bike to the vineyards and orchards in the spring and summertime, and at harvest time.
Meanwhile, I now live in Woodstock, which is two hours from Windsor, which has a 400-year history of French settlement. I am working on a song about the French heritage in Southern and Southwestern Ontario.
This is the rough draft with the first verse and chorus.
