How about a swampy country version of “New Orleans is Sinking?”

Check out this cover of “New Orleans is Sinking” by Crystal Shawanda who comes from Wiikwemkoong First Nation on Manitoulin Island in Ontario. She’s been recording for more than a decade with her latest album, Church House Blues, featuring this Tragically Hip cover. Gord would approve. (Via Corey)
