Aha, me b'ys, Mark Royle & team at “Come to NL” (Newfoundland & Labrador @ https://www.cometonl.com/) are bringing ashore their newest welcoming video – directed by Skkynation Media. The soundtrack features Allison Crowe with her catch on “Lukey’s Boat”. Enjoy!
“Lukey’s Boat” as performed/recorded by Allison is composed by Virtue (Mary Hann) Kean of Cape Cove and Brookfield, NL. Virtue passed away in 1929 and her song’s handed down through the generations. It’s so familiar and loved the tune’s now woven into the traditional fabric of NL music.
You may well know of Gery Deugaw’s musical treasure trove of a site – GEST Songs of Newfoundland and Labrador – it contains background on this song and plenty more.
