Vinland Irish Newfoundland lyrics (177* d) RE: Irish Newfoundland lyrics 29 Nov 00

Tim, John, et al,

Many of the songs you're looking for are in 3 songbooks published by Vinland Music . A complete list of the songs in the books follows. Vinland also publishes the songs of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers and the sheet music for the wedding song "Daughter of Mine" (recorded by John McDermott) . I can post the lyrics of any of the non-copyright songs. The books have piano/ vocal /guitar arrangements.

I believe I'm the only publisher dedicated exclusively to Newfoundland music. If I can be of any assistance, contact me at:

Vinland Music Box 40, Ladle Cove NF A0G 2Y0 Canada Ph. (709) 670-3377 e-mail:

A great source for recordings, information, and songbooks is O'Briens Music Store, St. John's ( phone (709) 753-8135. The owners are very friendly and will help you find anything related to Newfoundland or Irish music.

Cheers, Eric
