The inspiration for this CD was fostered by the Ryanís Fancy album Newfoundland Drinking Songs that was released in the 1970s; it was about time to update the selection of songs and release another volume of Newfoundland Drinking Songs for a new generation of fans.
What is more appropriate in Newfoundland than to have a few drinks and get together with your friends, or even strangers you just met that instantly become your friends, and have an old fashioned kitchen party complete with songs, stories and dancing?!
Many of our drinking songs are Irish and Scottish songs that have become perennial favourites in Newfoundland and Labrador. On this CD we have put together a rousing selection of songs that you might hear on a night out at your favourite pub.
This CD features many top Newfoundland artists including Shanneyganock, The Irish Descendants, Chris Hennessy, The Celtic Connection, Fine Crowd, The Government Rams, Chris Andrews & Mark Hiscock, Kilkenny Krew, Muldow, The Clanceys, as well as newcomers Napper Tandy.
So get together with a few of your best friends, grab a pint of your favourite brew, crank up the CD player and sing along with Newfoundland Drinking Songs!!
