Description

Peppered with linguistic gems (“If you want your eye-balls straightened, just come out next week with me”), the folk songs of Newfoundland reveal connections to the hardy British ballad, but also possess a unique humor that has come out of living on this environmentally challenging northern island. Alan Mills sings songs of the land and the sea.
