Well known for his traditional Newfoundland music, Daniel comes from a long line of fiddle and accordion players from Cow Head. A multi-instrumentalist who has performed throughout North America, Australia and Europe, Daniel is a recipient of the Newfoundland and Labrador arts Council Emerging Artist Award and played leading role in the Newfoundland-Ireland production of the TV miniseries Random Passage – a portrayal of life in early Newfoundland. In 2004, Daniel started DOP Productions, which has released an album of accordion music entitled The Four Stops, two-button accordion instructional DVD’s, his first solo album entitled Chain, and Live in Sally’s Cove and Winterside.
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.
The Misfits are local musicians Rick Biggin, Calvin Payne, Luke Payne, Kevin Bennett and Obediah Payne.
Fiddle, accordion and guitars belt out our traditional Newfoundland tunes.
The ‘boys’ will be popping up everywhere over the duration of the festival.
