Description: Singer/Songwriters Ep. 423
(Aug 12, 2017)

Who would you think of if you were asked to name some of Newfoundland & Labrador's pioneer singer/songwriters? Chances are Ron Hynes comes to mind quickly. But other than Ron, what other local singer/songwriters can you think of from the vinyl era?

Well, there were plenty! Perhaps the first recording by a Newfoundland & Labrador singer/songwriter dates back to 1943 - the 'shellac' era. That recording was by Art Scammell. Scammell recorded a few of his originals including The Squid Jigging Ground on 78 rpm singles in 1943.

In addition to Art Scammell, the playlist for this episode incudes Bob Lambert, Bruce Moss, Christopher Kearney, Dave Nicol, Derek Pelley, Harry Martin, Rex Hemeon, and others. (encore - originally aired September 17, 2016 )
