Jean Hewson & Christina Smith

Website

For the past 30 years, Jean Hewson (guitar & vocals) and Christina Smith (fiddle and cello) have been performing the traditional songs, ballads, and dance tunes of Newfoundland and Labrador for audiences in North America and the UK. They learned their repertoire directly from the older generation of musicians and singers around the Island.

Their CDS Like Ducks! and August Gale (Borealis) have received multiple nominations and awards, and in 2010, they were honoured by the Goderich Celtic Festival in Ontario, receiving the Tradition Bearer Award for their ongoing contribution to the traditional folk culture of Canada.
