Your voice and your music is like a comfort blanket and always reminds me of being home. You can take the girl out of Cape Breton but you can't take Cape Breton out of the girl.

Kicking off the weekend with some summer sun - finally! Got big plans? Tried dining out for the first time in a looong time - so nice to be getting back to some semblance of normal. Enjoy your Friday! By request The Ballad of Malcolm Murray... ... See MoreSee Less

Enjoy your Friday sessions, thanks for your music and your time! You're one of a few musicians that can pull it off with just a guitar and your voice and sound just like on record or CD! You're an amazing talent! ❀

Many nights I have been comforted by your songs in times of being home sick. Your family has been a blessing to all capers who live away from home 🏠 I am back and love watching you play thank you πŸ™

Love your music Jimmy Rankin. I grew up listening to The Rankin Family music every Sunday Morning on the Sounds Atlantic program on the local country station here in the Annopolis Valley AVR. I'm a big fan of your solo music as well but I was wondering if you still sing "Mull River Shuffle"? I would love to request it if you do. Cheers bud πŸ™‚

So good to hear you mention us in England. I’ve often felt you’ve forgotten us! Those Rankin tours in the 90s were fantastic. The night at Liverpool Philharmonic when you supported Mary Black and brought the house down.

What a great song Jimmy , it one of the best hope all is healthy bud thanks

I dig it. I was hoping that you would do a performance of one you wrote with Gordie Sampson that he recorded, No More I’ll Go Roving. I love that one and would love to hear your vocals on it.

Have a good weekend Enjoy the beautiful weather Good singing

Wow - and I thought I knew every Rankin song out there - never heard this one though. Thanks Jimmy!

What a great way to end a beautiful Friday...thank you

Beautiful song! Looking forward to more Fridays and your songs. Miss my home. Greetings from Charlotte, North Carolina.

You could sing the phone book, Jimmy Rankin, and I would listen; there’s just something about that voice! Have a happy Summer you!

Was that a new final verse? πŸ‘ Thanks for the great tunes!

How about...Northern Winds. Its my fave

(Clap, clap , clap , cheers and whistles - I can’t find the emojis for this😊). Thank you Jimmy, that was gorgeous Thoroughly enjoyed this. What a fabulous way to start a weekend πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜Š Simply The Best. Thanks again Prayers for the continuing safety for you and your family πŸ™πŸ™

My all time favorite!!! I even requested it from you when you did a show in port hawksbury and you jokingly said I hope I remember the words lol

I was listening to older Rankin tapes while making salads today. Never tire of them. My favs while in the kitchen. Kudos to the Rankins for their wonderful music, Rankins forever! πŸ™‚

Thanks for singing this the last time you were in Yellowknife and dedicating it to our little Malcolm who passed away a few years ago. πŸ’—

loved this so much, reminded me of the characters back home in rural NB. Love your music, Rankin fam from day 1...thanks for doing thisπŸ€—πŸ’ž

Thanks Jimmy for posting these. Love your music. Your family's music and love learning your songs. Wish I had your voice to do them justice! You do Cape Breton proud!

Awesome Song Jimmy, I met you in Burlington Ontario a few years back Was a Great Show I Bought your CD Thank You

I love this song! I think most of us knew a special one-of-a-kind character like that. It brought a very special one to mind for me. Thank you so much!

Luv your Friday songs Jimmy. Hope to see you in Ontario soonπŸ’•made a point of visiting the Orangedale station a few years back. Cute little spotπŸ’•

Jimmy thank you for another gift of you...I also think you two need to re-connect .... his perseverance from “a few ago” is more than unique and outstanding.. who knows...πŸ™‚

Awesome! Would love to hear You play the mull river shuffle😊😊

This was so good. One of my favourite songs you have ever put out is December. When I bought your Christmas CD I played that song over and over, I was so taken with it. All the best.
