Chris Hennessy's Road to Torbay


A restless spirit and a touring band brought Chris Hennessy from Ireland to Canada in the 1970s.

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, and we'll hear it this week.

Our second studio session features Aley Waterman.

She's been in bands, as a keyboard player and harmony singer, and is currently a member of Thee Internet, one of the most popular new bands in St. John's

She's also a burgeoning songwriter, just starting to explore her own sound and voice.

Aley Waterman took time from her studies at Memorial University to drop by the Performance Hour studio.
