Falcon was famous as a composer and singer of chansons. The best known, Chanson de la Grenouillère, is a narrative of the massacre at Seven Oaks, written from the Métis viewpoint, and is published in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Canada, 1939 and in Songs of Old Manitoba by Margaret Arnett Macleod. Other mocking songs about local events included Lord Selkirk’s capture of Fort William (Le Lord Selkirk au Fort William) and the expedition of General Dickson (Le General Dickson). He described himself as “poète du canton” and was later known as “le barde des plaines.”
