Show Description

You don’t have to travel far in Newfoundland and Labrador to hear our traditional music – it’s a cultural touchstone, both a shared experience and a national badge of honour. With its narrative power, distinctive sound and strong links to Western Europe, traditional music represents the province’s history and culture, and forms a vital link between the past and present. For many it’s also a proud and powerful manifestation of the “unique Newfoundland and Labrador character.”

Getting to Cow Head

This show is part of the Gros Morne Theatre Festival. See Getting to Cow Head for directions to the Warehouse Theatre and Shallow Bay Motel.

Awesome! Loved the music and the history. NFLD is such a great place. Peter Saunders, Calgary, AB

I have seen several Neddy Norris Night productions but the one this year I feel is the best one overall. The show flowed very well, the context and history of each piece was clearly stated, there was a good balance among the performers, they clearly wok well together. Charles Cameron, Corner Brook, NL

Will definitely recommend this festival to everyone. First taste of Newfoundland music and ballads. We are really pleased to have discovered this part of Newfoundland and have back tracked to attend. Worth it!!! Sorry we have to leave, this is definitely a highlight. L & M Matthews, Vineland, ON
