Burin Peninsula Festival of Folk Song and Dance

Salt Pond

Accordion and fiddle sounds fill the air. Feet unconsciously tap in slow unison to haunting melodies or quicken to tunes of jigs and reels. A voice lifts acapella from the stage telling a story of shipwrecks and legends, ballads of life and love. Musicians from 9 to 90, from far and near, connect in this festival of rich musical heritage. Traditional NL, Irish, Country and Gospel. Set and step dancing. Toutons and tea, silent auction.
