3 Years of Provisions and 2 French Horns - Music of the Moravian Inuit

A re-broadcast of the documentary "Three Years of Provisions and two French Horns - Music of the Moravian Inuit" dedicated to the memory of Makkovik's James Anderson, fondly known as Uncle Jim, who was a passionate music lover and celebrated archivist. Uncle Jim welcomed the MUN Brass Ensemble to his community as it toured Labrador in 2008. The once common sound of brass bands, central to Moravian religious practices has died out in recent years and this tour organized by Memorial University's Tom Gordon re-ignited the sound of brass for the enjoyment of residents of every age in Happy Valley Goose Bay, Makkovik, Nain and Hopedale.
