The "Newfoundlanders Away" Edition

Lately we've heard a good deal about more people from Newfoundland and Labrador staying home, or returning home to find work.
It's the side benefit of a booming economy (booming in some parts of the province, at least).
But there remain many thousands spread far and wide. Some of them would surely like to come home. Others couldn't be bothered.
Musicians have always been among our most prominent exports, and although many of them choose to stay, we still send plenty to the mainland and beyond.
This Saturday (June 4), we check in with Newfoundland artists living in Calgary, Toronto, and London, England.
Selina Boland (pictured), Barry Canning, David Picco, and Ashley Fayth will talk about their travels, their latest recordings, and how they maintain musical links back home.
