Peter Narvaez

Perhaps you marveled at his command of guitar and harmonica when he played on Out of the Fog recently, or noticed his editing credits on publications like Of Corpse: Death and Humor in Folklore and Popular Culture. He might have taught you at MUN or sat in on an impromptu jam session with you and some friends at a downtown bar.

Dr. Peter Narvaez is a singer/songwriter, a respected blues musician, an educator, writer, researcher and dedicated community volunteer. In an effort to honour his tireless efforts to furthering the traditional folk arts of this province, the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society has named Peter the recipient of the 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award.

For more than 30 years, Peter has contributed his time and talent to the provincial folk arts community. Join us to celebrate the hard work and support of Peter Narvaez when he is presented with his award at this year’s festival.

The 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Peter Narvaez by Folk Arts Society President Anita Best on August 8th, during the Sunday evening session of the 34th Annual Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival.
