Preserving our musical past

Dr. Beverley Diamond, director of Memorial University's Research Centre for the study of Music, Media and Place (MMAP) and a Canada Research Chair in Traditional Music, Ethnomusicology, produced It's Time for Another One: Folksongs from the South Coast of Newfoundland Ramea
and Grole this past year. The CD is a collection of archival recordings made by Jesse Fudge in the late 1960s in the communities of Ramea and Grole. In addition to the old recordings, the recording includes some spoken word (interview excerpts) and three new arrangements commissioned from St. John's producers/musicians Jim Payne, Pamela Morgan and Glen Collins. The CD is packaged with a 40-page booklet of documentation. Below are six selections from that CD
