All-hands Finale

The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society is proud to present another Young Folk at the Hall. Thanks to the volunteer efforts of Fergus O’Byrne,  and especially the workshop mentors without whom this event would not come to fruition, we are sharing our traditional music with the next generation. Times change, but our music is a through line, a reflection of who we were and who we may become. Coming together to enjoy music keeps our community strong and vibrant, and we’re happy to have a hand in that.

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
