A harvest season playlist for whatever your mood


Hi, my name is Kara, and my go-to conversation topic, if it’s not agriculture, is music. I live and breathe music. I believe it’s something that can bring people together in ways that other things simply can’t.

Recently, I took to Twitter asking our readers and listeners to send me their favourite tunes as many head into full swing harvest. After all, having music as company keeps many of us entertained for those early mornings and late nights on the combine, truck, or grain cart — especially after the coffee has cooled, and the snacks have run out. So why not have some fun?

One of the beautiful perks of music is the ability to share it! And for those of you that know me well, know I love a good playlist I can shuffle, especially if it’s filled with all different kinds of songs. Here are some of my favourite songs to keep me company, along with your suggestions. (NOTE: I didn’t duplicate artists. This list would go on for eons if I listed the best of all the bands/artists. Nor do I own ANY of these songs):
