The music, as it was always played, does have a lot of fire.

Newfoundland's story is one of survival, of hearts and heroes. It's a culture of singers and storytellers, a place that people can learn about through the music. It's also a place that many have never heard of -- though names such as Great Big Sea, Ron Hynes, and Figgy Duff may ring a bell. They're just a few Newfoundlanders bringing their music to the world stage. Matthew Byrne is one of these, a singer and guitarist whose voice, aptly put by fellow musician Alan Doyle, is "friggin' perfect." 

The  Bradford Bog People, a band  steeped in traditional music  and a regional favorite, visited The Folk Show  to play in the studio.
