Description:
  • Donated as part of the Aidan O'Hara collection, this recording was probably made on two separate occasions. Tracks 1-5 feature Rita and Sarah Keane; the remainder of the tracks are of John Joe English, singing but also offering an account of his life, fishing in Newfoundand, and migrations. Much of Aidan's collecting focussed around Branch and the Cape Shore area of Newfoundland. These recordings were likely made in this area.
