Product Description

The Green and Salty Days is a celebration of everything important to Newman Sound Men’s Choir: singing, community and the musical traditions of our home, Newfoundland and Labrador.  For our debut CD, we decided to record a collection of songs to represent our traditions.  All this music — newly-commissioned works and arrangements, as well as old well-known folk tunes — is uniquely linked in some way to the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador.”
