Friday Night Concert

Rum Ragged

Few traditional Newfoundland bands have risen as quickly in the ranks as Rum Ragged.

Formed by singer/guitarist Mark Manning and singer/accordion player Aaron Collis along with Anthony Chafe on bodhran and Michael Boone on bass and banjo. Rum Ragged has garnered respect from a loyal, ever-growing fan base as well as their musical peers. From spirited instrumentals to heartfelt ballads, they pay homage to the greats that came before them while carving out a fresh, unique sound of their own.

Rum Ragged released their debut album in the summer of 2016. In the fall of 2017, they released their hugely successful Rum Ragged At Christmas. Rum Ragged will be releasing their much anticipated third studio album entitled The Hard Times on July 31st, 2018.

Rum Ragged can deliver the full traditional spectrum in a live context, whether it is an intimate pub show or a spirited festival stage.

Rum Ragged have performed from coast to coast, into the Caribbean and the UK.

Jim Payne and Fergus O’Byrne

Two of Newfoundland’s most respected performers combine instrumental prowess and humorous repartee to cover a broad spectrum of Newfoundland folk culture, including songs, stories and dance tunes. Their repertoire includes rousing sea shanties and work songs, poignant ballads, comic ditties, folk tales and recitations, along with toe-tapping jigs, reels, and polkas on a variety of instruments.

David Penney

For over 20 years Dave Penny has been performing around St. John's and beyond, and in that time has written several comedy songs such as Johnny Chrome and A Townie Courted a Bayman's Daughter, about wacky topics like a cyclist feuding with an oversized pickup truck, a shortage of mustard pickles and owning a Chip Wagon stand.  He has performed in many Newfoundland and Labrador towns and festivals, the Meriposa Folk Festival in Ontario, and parts of New England.   

His second and most recent recording—All Turned Around—has been nominated for a 2017 MusicNL award for Celtic/Traditional Artist of the Year and a 2017 Canadian Folk Music Award for Traditional Singer of the Year.  The album promises to further strengthen his position as one of Newfoundland and Labradors most fun and diverse entertainers, with its razor-sharp commentary on songs like Chase The Ace and #darkNL, and its driving accordion tunes.
