Young Folk at the Hall 2008
An event for young traditional musicians to get together and play, supported by volunteers and the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Council. The kids are organized in diverse groups with a slightly older mentor, and over the course of six hours of rehearsal they pick tunes and songs to perform (and their own wacky band names!) and work out all the arrangements themselves. The resulting concert at the LSPU Hall was wonderful, and I would say so even if my daughter wasn't in it. I'm very proud of her, and I think her confidence has grown a lot. She's looking forward to next year.
