Bilingual Love

Entre Chien Et Loup


The saying Entre Chien Et Loup,


or Between Dog and Wolf,

a metaphor for Between Day and Night,

has a history in both French & English languages.

Dusk, this song tells us, seems to be a lovely


& appropriate time for Making Love

with your Sweetie

Entre Chien Et Loup

In the 1970's,

a friend of Ross Campbell's

operated David's Dulcimer Works

in Alberta and gifted Ross

with an Appalachian lap dulcimer,

of the kind made famous

by Joni Mitchell.

(In fact, Joni once used Ross's dulcimer for a concert in Saskatoon when all her equipment was sidelined by

a paralyzing prairie blizzard.)

A traditional Appalachian dulcimer can play in only a very few keys, so Ross took his gift back to David to get a fourth string and 3 new frets added so that he can play it in minor keys

and use extended jazz chords on it.

That instrument, one of Ross's favourites, forms the musical foundation for this song.

Ross added  several Violin & Viola parts to flesh out the orchestration in verses two & three.

Instead of a sweet little violin solo,

Ross decided to add

an edgy viola solo instead. 

Ross also performs on Guitar,

and is provided with a

subtle & effective

Bottom End by

Dale Ladouceur on Bass &

Bill Hobson on Drums,

both of Edmonton's

Crowtown Productions,

where the song was produced.

If you REALLY like this song, please send Ross a couple of bucks to help fund his next album of Original Music, where your name will be included in the Credits, and you will become a Member of his

 Thanks a lot!
