Over 50 of your Favourite Bands Cover The Tragically Hip on Strombo’s ‘Hip 30’ Show

Celebrating "Canada's band"

On January 1st, George Stroumboulopoulos’ CBC Radio 2 show did what no one has done before to celebrate “Canada’s band,” The Tragically Hip on their 30th anniversary.

Over the past year Strombo has asked a number of acts who have come through his home studio to perform their own versions of some favourite Hip songs and compiled it into a stunning broadcast. Strombo presented a four-hour long showcase of The Hip covers, from over 50 of Canada’s best bands to mark the 30th year since The Tragically Hip released their self-titled EP back in 1987.

“On January 1st we say goodbye to 2016 and welcome in the new year with an unprecedented gathering. The Strombo Show has invited Canada’s best into my living room to celebrate and cover their favourite Hip songs and share their memories of the band, the music and of course, Gord Downie. Four hours of incredible music, memories and moment.s There has never been a show like this — Canada’s best covering Canada’s band. This is our love letter to the band.”
