Paul Langlois Honoured with Maple Leaf Forever Guitar

April 1, 2015

On July 19, 2013, a storm brought down an aged silver maple tree on Laing Street in Toronto’s Leslieville neighbourhood. This famed maple tree was the inspiration for the song “Maple Leaf Forever” by Alexander Muir, written in the year of Confederation 1867.

The City of Toronto continued to preserve the historic legacy of this maple tree by working with Toronto’s artisans, designers, and woodcraft workers to turn the salvaged wood into community art and cultural pieces that will be distributed to public, cultural and historic institutions across Canada. One of those pieces was an electric guitar which will be shared by Canadian musicians, each caretakers for one year at a time.

On March 27th, Paul Langlois was presented with the electric guitar at the Green Living Show in Toronto. Look for the beautiful guitar on the Fully and Completely Tour this year.
