Event Notes


The recitation has long been a staple form of amusement in Newfoundland and Labrador culture. Whether to deliver a story in a memorable fashion, delight listeners at a kitchen party, pass the time in a fishing stage, or to “say your piece” at a community concert, we have always been very adept at using the spoken word as entertainment. Back in 2013, four saucy reciters came together with a common dream - to take over the world. They’re not there yet - but for the last 11 years they’ve put together an annual show that has been a sold-out success, and spawned 3 successful albums, given them several radio hits (relatively speaking) and turned them into published authors. Now Join Dave Paddon, Dave Penny, and Harry Ingram, as they partner with the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival and return to the Grand ol’ Hall
