The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society extends its sympathies to the friends and family of Ron Hynes on this sad occasion. Ron was at the fore front of the "cultural revolution" of the 1970s and continued to shape and define the Newfoundland folk scene throughout his long and storied career. He was a songwriter of immense skill and talent and more than worthy of his many awards and accolades. His contributions to art, music and culture spread from Water Street across the continent and the globe and we shall not see his like again any time soon. He was an artistic giant and a true original. We are all the poorer for his passin
