"Towards The Sunset" Part 1 Encore Broadcast
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.
Who would have thought 30 years ago when three young Placentia baymen walked
into Echo Recording Studios on the top of Longs Hill that
the album they were about to record would stand as a
seminal work in the Newfoundland canon influencing a
generation of folk and traditional performers.
It's a work that speaks to
the heart of who we are and who we were.
The material is as
fresh today as it was three decades ago.
