The Singalong - An Insight into Newfoundlanders.
It is nearly 50 years since Newfoundlanders, by the barest of margins, voted to join Canada. People will debate forever whether that was the best choice for Newfoundland and Labrador. But, those who recall the "times" before Confederation, and where we are today, will realize we have received two great blessings since Confederation.

* With patriotic pride, we all proclaim ourselves "Newfoundlanders".

* We have outgrown the prejudice which harmed our society for so many years.

Newfoundlanders, the friendliest folk in Canada, consider themselves to be "Newfoundlanders" first-and-foremost and "Canadians" only in a national sense. We are glad to be both. Newfoundlanders, for the most part, have only a sentimental interest in their country of origin (mainly England, Ireland, and Scotland). In the music we love to sing, we blend "John Peel", "Danny Boy", and "Annie Laurie" together in a singalong, without any thought about where the songs came from. We don't know, and don't care, that "My Wild Irish Rose" and "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" are actually American.

This Singalong Songbook is a tribute to the fact that Newfoundlanders share and enjoy the rich musical heritage we have brought with us from our "Old Countries". We do so, with a "Come-All-Ye" spirit of friendship, that "pays no mind" to the hard times and animosities of yesteryear.

Newfoundlanders are never happier than when joining in a singalong - often the crowning pleasure of a social evening. In this Singalong Songbook, you will find traditional selections - ten each of the most popular Newfoundland, English, Irish, and Scottish songs; with a bonus of ten American songs and ten of our most beloved, joyous carols of Christmas.

The Songbook is indexed and cross-referenced, printed on high-quality bond paper and, bound so as to last. The Singalong Songbook will be a source of pleasure to you, your family and friends for years and years. Enjoy!
