The Dictionary of Newfoundland English states that a concert is "A miscellaneous public performance of songs, recitations, skits, etc.". Many of these pieces were composed by community locals or learned orally from an older traditional collection and passed down through the generations.

Join us for Good as a Concert: A festival of traditional story and song. The evening will feature local performers steeped in the ballad and storytelling traditions of Newfoundland and Labrador. From obscure ballads and rollicking ditties to recitations and folk tales, this is a chance to hear some of the lesser known songs and stories from our vast traditional music heritage.

Doors open at 7:00 pm.
