Glory Days of Ryan's Fancy - Fergus O'Byrne

It's nearly 30 years since Ryan's Fancy disbanded but during its time together this legendary Irish/Newfoundland folk group, consisting of Denis Ryan, Fergus O'Byrne and Dermot O'Reilly, connected with fans throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Their national TV show, filmed throughout the province, is now an archival snap shot of a bygone era. In music and stories from the glory days of Ryan's Fancy, Fergus O'Byrne takes us on the road with the band and we'll hear music from their 2 CD compilation retrospective "What A Time! A Forty Year Celebration."
