Praise for It’s Time for Another One

“This is a great resource for scholars, teachers and students who want to understand the singing and music traditions of the south coast of Newfoundland.”
MUSICultures (read the full review)
“The field recordings are superb: unaccompanied kitchen and sitting room performances of material that consists mostly of that glory of the Newfoundland singing tradition, locally composed songs about contemporary events.”
Journal of American Folklore
