The Threads that Bind us - Words, Customs, Stories and Songs that connect Newfoundland and Ireland

Aileen, a researcher of songs connecting both places, will perform ballads from Newfoundland and Wexford. The girls join her for children's songs and a spot of traditional dancing.

Michael will share observations about shared folklore, customs, beliefs, words and sayings recorded during his various trips to Newfoundland over the years.
