The recitation has long been a staple form of amusement in Newfoundland and Labrador culture. Whether to deliver a story in a memorable fashion, delight listeners at a kitchen party, pass the time in a fishing stage, or to “say your piece” at a community concert, we have always been very adept at using the spoken word as entertainment.

Back in 2013, four saucy reciters came together with a common dream – to take over the world. They’re not there yet – but for the last 11 years they’ve put together an annual show that has been a sold-out success, and spawned 3 successful albums, given them several radio hits (relatively speaking) and turned them into published authors.  Now Join  Dave Paddon, Dave Penny, and Harry Ingram, as they partner with the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival and return to the Grand ol’ Hall

Join us for a very special Songs & Yarns with the Larry Foley Trio as we kick off a week full of folky festivities!

Let’s get crafty! Bring your work-in-progress and a buddy for the most wholesome experience that brings folk music and art together! From 7-9pm at The Legion, $15 + hst & fees.

This event is a part of the 48th Annual NL Folk Festival Expansion, bringing folks arts outside the park all festival week long from July 8th-14th.
