Performance Hour VIdeo: Chris Hennessy's Tribute to Torbay

A restless spirit and a touring band brought Chris Hennessy from Ireland to Canada in the 1970s, and when he reached Newfoundland he never looked back.

He's spent most of his life in Torbay, playing original and traditional songs at pubs around St. John's.

Chris dropped by Studio F at CBC St. John's to record a session for the Performance Hour.

We captured that session on video as well, and from it, here's Chris Hennessy doing one of his signature songs. "The Sea Town of Torbay."
