All-hands Finale

The Folk Arts Society is proud to support the Young Folk at the Hall, and the tireless efforts of Fergus O'Byrne and the many experienced folk musicians who come together to volunteer in order to put off this one of a kind program. It is trite to say that youth are our future, but that is exactly what they are! We are very fortunate in Newfoundland and Labrador to have a longstanding and healthy tradition of folksong and folk music which in part helps shape our unique culture. Through Young Folk at the Hall, Fergus and his volunteer folk musicians are sure to pass our musical traditions to younger generations who, we believe, will become tradition bearers themselves and ensure that our great-great-grandchildren will know and love the folksong and folk music that continues to define us.

The members of the board of directors of the Folk Arts Society tip our hats to Fergus, his volunteers, and especially to the Young Folk who worked so hard to bring you this wonderful concert of traditional music.

Congratulations everyone!

John Drover
President, Folk Arts Society
