THE ICE ROAD by Kent Fiddy

Browsing through Youtube again, I came across this little gem of a video. It is a song about the men and women who work up at the diamond mines as well as the truck drive and road crews that operate up and down the  Tibbit to Contwoyto Ice Road. The song, The Ice Road, was produced by David Sinclair and written and preformed by Kent Fiddy.

Kent Fiddy is, from what I found, a musician from British Colombia:

Kent Douglas Fiddy has worked as a songwriter and performer for many years. His material has been published by Irving/Almo Music(Canada/U.S.A), Chappel Music and Kenny Rogers’ Lionshare Music. His recordings have been released internationally. His songs are used in schools for both literacy and music education purposes. Kent has opened for diverse artists as blues legends Sonny Terry Brownie McGee and Valdy, Melanie Doane, Dave Mallett, Jonny Hardy(Old Blind Dogs) and Gavin Marwick(Iron Horse). He has performed at benefits with artists including k.d. lang, Shari Ulrich, Spirit of the West and Don Herron. Recent concert appearances include festivals in both Atlantic and Pacific Canada.

Anyways here is the Ice Road song, accompanied by some slides.
