About the Artist...
The Sharecroppers got together as three teachers who were asked 12 years ago to sing a song at their school cabaret! Of course they said yes! Mike played the standup bass, Ed played guitar and Guy played mandolin and guitar. So they played their first public performance song called “Sharecropper’s Dream” by the Nitty-Gritty Dirt Band. It went over so well the group haven’t looked back since…doing shows for schools, parishes, Legion halls, Coach Tours, Cruise Ships and national/international conventions etc and then they were invited to a festival in Seoul Korea where they sang all about the culture and traditions of NFLD.
Sharecroppers released their first CD “NATURAL” with their original - now classic - song on it called “One Room School” which aired on NTV as a vignette for 17 straight months two and three times a day and is still occasionally seen.
They later represented NFLD at the International Festival of the Sea in Bristol, England where they launched the second CD “This New Founde Lande”. Their latest CD “Home, Boys!” has 8 new original pieces of music (13 songs in all) and the reaction so far has been overwhelming. It’s like a work of art to them...vivid lyrics, meaningful Newfoundland based themes, and yet still lots of up-tempo life in a natural trio kind of sound.
