Patrick Moran (from The Punters) and Chris Andrews (the leader of the band Shanneyganock) have collaborated to bring a selection of old songs that have rarely been recorded and many that have never been previously recorded.
Being that Patrick and Chris are both from the Logy Bay and Torbay area, this selection of songs was mostly gleaned from people in the area.
Patrick and Chris are very talented in that they play a variety of instruments between them and both are excellent vocalists.
Pat Casey’s Song “The Hillsides of Torbay” features the outstanding vocals of a young up-and-coming musician, Allan Ricketts from Torbay. A great friend of Chris Andrews, Ed Caddigan, wrote the song “Treasures”, which will evoke much emotion from everyone that hears the song.
As is the case in Newfoundland, there are fun songs that we can all relate to (“The Berries” and “Phil Grace’s Truck”) as well as songs of tragedy (“The Water Witch”) and accomplishment (“9:13”).
A few of the selections from this CD are destined to become Newfoundland classics.
Patrick Moran and Chris Andrews are two of St. John's busiest musicians! Individually or playing together they are members of The Punters, Shanneyganock, The Government Rams and The 8 Track Favourites, and Chris has also released a solo album and a collaboration with Mark Hiscock, also of Shanneyganock.
Both musicians play several instruments and have expressive voices showcased on all of their recordings. Patrick has been playing fiddle since the age of six and is also a stellar guitar player, and Chris is best known for his deep and expressive voice. The two men, from the Torbay and Logy Bay areas, are fixtures on the Newfoundland music scene, singing traditional and original songs of the Island across Canada and in our own backyard.
