Work Work Work: Work and Labour History in Song

Work Work Work: Work and Labour History in Song

  • Description

    Songs related to work in all its forms have always comprised a significant portion of our traditional music heritage. This project contributes 28 songs not widely heard or recorded--some traditional, some written for or about specific job actions, some especially for this collection--to the repertoire related to the history of work and labour in this province. It is by no means complete or definitive, nor was it meant to be, but the songs and the voices that sing them reflect both historical and contemporary struggles, and celebrate the working people of Newfoundland and Labrador.

    The production of this double CD collection has been a collaboration between the Greening Memorial Fund of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, NS, the Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour, the Research Centre for Music, Media and Place, (MMaP) at Memorial University, St. John's, NL, and SingSong Inc.

    It is also part of MMaP's audio series Back on Track.
