Folks here probably know of the "Pieces of Eight" piece that Neil wrote and which appeared in a 1987 issue of Modern Drummer magazine. A Canadian musician I follow, Lee Rosevere, has recently put out an EP of covers of Can-Con called MAPL Roots, born out of a cover he did of the previously pointed-out Peart piece.

In his own words:


I haven't recorded covers for a long time, but I got the urge to learn Neil Peart's "Pieces of Eight" after he passed away in January.. and then after learning it, I decided to do a couple more, all songs that I grew up with in the 70s and 80s that had an impact on me.. all of them Canadian compositions and all of these were learned by ear.

"MAPL" is the four parts that determines a Canadian song for CRTC regulations - music/artist/producer/lyrics

The release is a free download for all those interested!

(And if you like more ambient and soundtrack-type music, do check out Lee's other records on Bandcamp. I am a big fan of his Five Minute Meditations series.)
