"When I wrote "Merryflat Waltz" I was living alone in a small house near a place called Merryflat Saskatchewan. Merryflat isn't a town, or a village, or even a hamlet. Merryflat is one old schoolhouse surrounded by generational ranches. Being as it's in the middle of nowhere, community is an important aspect of life. Whether it was at a branding, or a rodeo, or the Christmas concert at Merryflat School, it is generally the same crowd that gathers. This crowd is made up of many characters, all of which I learned I could count on during my time living there. The "Merryflat Waltz" is a tip of the hat to those people who have supported me along the way and accepted me into their community. It's a community that's always good for a few stories and a lot of laughs," says Don Kinahan.
