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.

It's a work that speaks to the heart of whoThumbnail image for Thumbnail image for The Once big smiles colour.jpg we are and who we were. 


The material is as fresh today as it was three decades ago.

Many of these songs have become anthems in the Great Newfoundland Songbook performed by contemporary Newfoundland and Labrador entertainers on stages around the world or sung on stages around the bay or in kitchens or boats or where ever Newfoundlanders gather to share their undeniable bond.
