Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 444 - George Grandy
Description: NewFound Records profiles the musical career of George Grandy.

George is from Grand Bank on the Burin Peninsula where he was a fixture on the local entertainment scene during the 60s, 70s, and beyond. He hosted his own radio show for a year, and always drew a crowd wherever he performed. Along the way he recorded three vinyl LPs, a cassette tape, and a few compact discs.

Now 80 years old, George can still rock with the best of them as he demonstrated at the recent Tribute Jam of Newfoundland rock 'n roll pioneers held at The Old Mill in St. John's.

You won't want to miss this special episode of NewFound Records which will include excerpts from a recent interview with the remarkable and inspiring George Grandy. (encore - originally aired May 27, 2017)
