The island of Grand Manan, New Brunswick, Canada is where I now call home ever since immigrating here from the USA and retiring. I have no musical talents, but I love music, especially from Newfoundland and Labrador. Something about NL music that goes well here on Grand Manan - maybe the fact that Grand Manan rhymes with Newfoundland, or maybe the fishing industry, or maybe the beauty of both places. 🙂

Since the year 2002 I’ve been archiving those songs at GEST Songs of Newfoundland and Labrador - just google GEST songs to see the results to date. It’s the largest archive of its genre with plenty of songs brought over from Ireland, Scotland, and Ireland well before Canadian Confederation.
