Work Work Work: Work and Labour History in Song

WWW CoverProduced by SingSong Inc., MMaP, the Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour, and the Greening Memorial Fund at St. Francis Xavier University, Work Work Work: Work and Labour History in Song explores the ways that the diverse peoples of Newfoundland and Labrador have used music to think about the role of work in their lives. From picket-line anthems to songs about mining, fishing, domestic labour, woods work, nursing, traditional subsistence practices, and more, the songs in this collection shed light on the many worlds of work in the province. With both traditional and newly composed songs, the discs present powerful performances by some of the province’s finest singers.

This two-CD set can be ordered from the SingSong Inc. website, where individual tracks can also be purchased for immediate download. The set is also available from MMaP.
