Program Title: NewFound Records - Ep. 629 - Hills of Newfoundland & Labrador
Description: NFR makes for the hills for this episode.

Tune in and treat your ears to Lew Murphy’s stellar rendition of the traditional Hills of Newfoundland. The Labrador Balladeer, Gerald Mitchell chips in with the first recording of Byron Chaulk’s classic High On the Mountain Of Old Mokami. Leonard Meehan contribute’s Otto Kelland’s seldom-heard The Low Blue Hills Of Home. Newfoundland’s Marty Robbins, George Rowsell, is in fine form with Robbin’s Lord You Gave Me A Mountain. And the great John White sings his signature song Signal Hill as only he can. And there’s lots more too.
