On Hockey Days

On Hockey Days
On March 27th Raffi and Troubadour Music released Raffi's newest song, "On Hockey Days."

"On Hockey Days" is a toe-tapping all-ages song, Raffi's tribute to the game loved by young and old. It honours hockey parents who devotedly take their kids to the rink all winter long, and sounds a call to fun, fair play and respect as only a Raffi song can!
