"64 Pieces. 6 Strings. 1 Canada. 1 Guitar. Six String Nation is centered around the creation of a guitar nicknamed Voyageur.
Peabody Award winning broadcaster Jowi Taylor tells the story of the 64 pieces of Canadian history used to build this single acoustic guitar. A piece from Paul Henderson’s stick from the 1972 Summit Series, a bit from Pierre Trudeau’s canoe paddle, a sliver of the legendary Golden Spruce of Haida-Gwaii - this unique instrument is the embodiment of Canada’s history, culture, spirit and soul.
Praised by musicians for its voice, tone and playability, Voyageur is embraced by Canadians of all backgrounds and walks of life. It has been played on Parliament Hill on Canada Day, around campfires, in school gymnasiums, churches, television studios and festival stages by some of Canada’s best loved musicians, students to superstars and everyone in between. Every Canadian should meet and experience both Jowi Taylor and Voyageur."
