Canadian singer/songwriter Beverly Glenn-Copeland was born in Philadelphia in 1944, but spent most of his childhood in Ottawa.
Beginning as a folk singer with other influences, ranging from jazz to classical, he also went on to do a decent amount of solo work, recording under labels like GRT Records in the '70s and into the '80s. (His 1986 album Keyboard Fantasies was a pioneering electronic work, inspired by his embrace of Buddhism and the environment of southern Ontario near Algonquin Provincial Park.)
Glenn-Copeland was a regular on the Canadian children's show Mr. Dressup for decades, and also spent time writing and performing for the American shows Sesame Street and Shining Time Station. During his long musical career, Glenn-Copeland worked on albums with a number of artists, including Ken Friesen, Bruce Cockburn, Gene Martynec, Bob Disalle, Kathryn Moses, and countless others. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi
