pastorpest Canadian, Maritime Province Songbooks (15) RE: Canadian, Maritime Province Songbooks 19 Oct 02

We will be a long time exhausting Maritime folk songs in print (and out of print). The mention of Helen Creighton and Edith Fowke already listed is important. Also look for "Canadian Vibrations" edited by Edith Fowke and published in 1972 by Macmillan in Canada. Canadian vibrations includes old songs and songs through the 1960's. Allister MacGillvary has pubished two excellent large anthologies "The Cape Breton Song Collection" and "The Nova Scotia Song Collection" Sea-Cape Music Ltd. They can be purchased from Allister MacGillvary's own web-site. "Catch Ahold of This One..." edited by Eric West are Newfoundland and Labrador collections of at least two and possibly three volumes published by Vinland Music. "Favourite Songs of Newfoundland" edited by Alan Mills is another. I know I have seen collections of songs for both Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick but my mind is not coming up with titles.

Good luck with the song search!
