CD Having a Time



The CD cover is an evocative humourous pencil drawing by fellow Newfoundland artist/illustrator/writer Geoff Butler. Perhaps Geoff's imaginative take on Newfoundland's 'square dance' The Lancers.  This CD is now part of MUN's Folklore Department collection.

John C is joined here by the double juno award winning fiddler John Showman from Creaking Tree String Quartet in a live concert of Newfoundland traditional and Newfoundland inspired original tunes........beautifully recorded by his CTSQ bandmate Andrew Collins.
