ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Being an island and surrounded by the ocean it is no wonder that the sea plays an important part in the lives of everyone who lives in Newfoundland.

Along with all the good that comes from the sea there is also tragedy. Our seafaring men & women spend their lives making a living from the sea and these songs represent topics that are always prevalent in our everyday lives.

Whether it’s “The Loss Of The Marion” which tells of tragedy at sea, “The Mary Ellen Carter” about the rising of the ship from it’s watery grave, “Barrett’s Privateers” about piracy and the many other topics about the sea and its perils and joy. All these represent what is dealt with on an ongoing basis for the people of this island.
