To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this iconic, 1983, ground-breaking recording by Pat and Joe Byrne and Baxter Wareham, CBC Radio reunites the original trio for a special live concert recording at the LSPU Hall in St. John's. Guests include The Once, Matthew and Allan Byrne, Leeland Wareham and Lori Wareham-Mulroney.
