OTTAWA (July 2, 2009) –Today, Canada Post issued a quartet of stamps to celebrate the efforts of four musicians who made remarkable contributions to the Canadian music scene: international rock superstar Bryan Adams, renowned folklorist Stompin’ Tom Connors, pioneer in French-Canadian rock, Robert Charlebois, and Acadian singing sensation Édith Butler.

“A sequel to our very popular 2007 Canadian Recording Artists* series, these stamps showcase four individuals who helped build today’s thriving Canadian music industry,” said Robert Waite, Chairman of the Stamp Advisory Committee and Senior vice-president, Corporate Social Responsibility at Canada Post. "As a Global Superstar, Bryan Adams took Canadian music around the world and helped develop an infrastructure to propel other Canadians to the top of the charts. Stompin’ Tom Connors protested the policies he felt were hindering Canada’s artistic potential with songs that have become Canadian anthems. Robert Charlebois gave voice to and furthered the development of the chanson, and Édith Butler promoted a familiarity with and appreciation for Acadian culture in Canada and around the world. Together, these four artists have written a text book for music industry success.”

The stamps are square in format, and feature a monochromatic photo of each artist alongside his or her Order of Canada insignia. To reflect the stardom of these “living legends,” each is captured in the limelight by using close-cropped images that make it look like they are standing in a spotlight. The two cancellation sites of Timmins, Ontario and Paquetville, New Brunswick were chosen because of their relevance to these Canadian icons: Timmins is where Stompin’ Tom Connors was first recognized, and Paquetville is the small Acadian village where Édith Butler was born and raised.
