Re: Dance and Sing

A popular band from Newfoundland, it’s been a while since they’ve put out a new album, but they still play gigs. You can listen to all three albums on their website:
http://www.thenavigators.com/

Some info about the songs & tunes on this album are on their old website:
http://www.thenavigators.com/lyrics.html

These guys are one of my personal favourites, picked up the whistle in large part because of Freddy.

They have changed bass & drum players, while Arthur & Fred remain the lead singers.

On this album:
- Arthur O’Brien (electric guitar/acoustic guitar/vocals)
- Fred Jorgensen (whistle/bodhran/vocals)
- Ian Chipman (bass/vocals)
- Paul Murphy (drums)

The Boys in the Bunker was composed by Newfoundland fiddler Colin Carrigan.

Fred’s arrangement of The Rights of Man is variations/improvising on the original melody, until he picks up the tempo which is closer to the Right of Man most people are familiar with.

The Sea Monster was composed and played by Colin Carrigan on this album. It follows after a Stan Rogers song.
