ollaimh Newfoundland music (33) RE: Newfoundland music 07 Nov 12


remember pamela morgan and figgy duff. the group figgy duff were groundbreaking and the lead member pamela morgan has done great traditional cds since. her"ancestral songs" is one of my top ten favourite traditional cds. she also recorded a few cds with singer and folklorist anita best.

the other seventies group that broke new ground was the wonderfull grand band. ron hynes was their singer and songwriter.

did anyone mention baxter wareham? a great traditional player. jom byrne and his brother did a great cd with baxter.

for upbeat folk rock --great big sea.

ed kavanagh is a fine harp player with several trad cds, and there duncan cameron, hasn't recorded much but very talented.

but don't miss figgy duff

among the old guys there's also rufus guinchard.he was a back woods trsditional fiddler with lots of influence
