Newfoundlanders have a rich history of music. At every kitchen party hosted by Newfoundlanders at home or away, songs will be sung expressing love and pride for the Island. All Around The Circle and We'll Rant And We'll Roar are songbooks composed of the all-time favourite songs of Newfoundland.
Many of the most popular Newfoundland songs are available in these songbooks. Selections include "The Ode To Newfoundland", "Excursion Around The Bay", "The Black Velvet Band", "Heave Away" and many more!
The songbooks provide the melody with guitar chords, the lyrics, and a vocal arrangement to suit the average voice. Some of the songs, although they have guitar chords, have a tradition of being sung a cappella.
Songs selected and edited by Lyle Drake; arrangements by Sean Harris.
