As you write, I'm in the process of posting over 1400 photos of this year's trip to Newfoundland. I have already posted 85 videos which will be worked into the photo album. I just took a moment and ordered all 3 of your CDs. Please let me know ASAP what the dates are for your Memorial on Parade. We usually buy our airline tickets in the winter and that locks in the dates we'll be there.

I host a music series here in Kansas. See http://bartonarts.org/backroom.html If your travels ever take you this way, consider putting in a bid to play here.





John P Christopher offers a textural account of life and work among the recently resettled Inuit people of Whale Cove, Hudson Bay 1962, where he was studying beluga whale population dynamics. He also gives a carefully balanced tale of life abroad a Norwegian/Canadian seal hunter the MV Theron, as is pursues its grim work among the ice floes off Labrador and Newfoundland.

Interview by Algonquin College's Journalism Dept

Interview by Algonquin College's Journalism Dept following my October 16 7:00pm-8:30pm. show at Ottawa's Centrepoint Library Branch: "What explains the long, warm relationship between Newfoundland and Portugal?"

The talk drew a large, lively and varried crowd of Fisheries Dept research types(COD), navy, sailors, and 'Irish Music Ottawa' players, many of whom had something to say during the discussion. As a wrap to the evening I performed some Portuguese/Creole tunes (mornas and coladeras) to the pleasure of all present.
