The Trust owns and oversees the undeveloped 11-acre Landfall Preserve, a provincial heritage site with its 200-year old Kent Cottage in the scenic community of Brigus, NL. Since 2005, The Landfall Trust has worked to preserve Kent Cottage, protect Landfall’s pristine natural environment, and provide arts, cultural, and educational activities through the legacy of the late Bradley Jacob Folensbee, Jr. (Jake). The Musician in Residence program allows an artist to live in the cottage for two weeks to work on their craft.
This year’s artist, Jake Nicoll, takes a distinctive approach to creating music. His passion for exploring new ways to create and refine makes for a sound that is uniquely his own. Not one to toe the line, each of his offerings brings something completely new. The NL Folk Arts Society and the Landfall Trust are thrilled to have Jake spend two weeks working on songs for a new album in scenic Brigus. Learn more about the Landfall Trust here, and check out Jake’s music here.
