Hope this isn't a duplicate. THought I had posted it earlier. Anyway, I would love to talk with someone who knows them because I want to know if they would be insulted if I asked if they wanted to be on the codfish cd...best version of let me fish off cape st. mary's.

Newfoundland?
Do you mean Irish with ancestors from Newfoundland,
or Newfoundlanders with ancestors from Ireland....

This lot, I guess.

Doesn't look like my sort of thing, but they can't be hard to contact, surely?

They're very good, great voices. D'Arcy Broderick is an excellent fiddler. And they're natives of Newfoundland (accent on the LAND, by the way) with Irish forebears.

There's an interesting thread on "Let Me Fish Off Cape St. Mary's" here (click). The song was written by Otto Kelland, and we have the date of publication as 1947.

I found a Cape St. Mary's on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. Are we sure the cape the song addresses, is in Newfoundland?

Pretty unlikely that Otto Kelland, a life-long Newfoundlander, would set his nostalgic song about the life of a fisherman in Nova Scotia. However, he could have just pulled the name out of the air - but I would be very surprised if it's not an actual location in Nfld. Possible that the name of the place has changed .....

I thought I posted this but it seems to have got lost, or the nutcase mod deleted it - but D'Arcy Broderick hasn't been in the band for 20 years, if the Wikipedia entry is right. So he's one you won't be wanting to contact.

Don't Newfie fishermen ever go that far? Cod fishermen used to cross most of the Atlantic fom Europe, centuries ago. I'd have expected them to go wherever the fish were.

I think the one in NS is cape st. mary without the s. it is definitely newfoundland and is now a bird sanctuary.

Looks like the Irish Descendants forgot to renew their Website registration. They perform regularly at O'Reilly's Irish Newfoundland Pub. I'm sure the pub can help you get in contact with them.

The Irish Descendants also have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/THE-IRISH-DESCENDANTS-55094049911/.

Ryan's Fancy (Dermot O'Reilly was a member) also performs at O'Reilly's.

"Don't Newfie fishermen ever go that far?"

It would be unlikely for a Nfld fisherman to go to the Bay of Fundy in a Cape Anne to fish , I would think, though not impossible - an Inuit man once told me that he flew to Prince Edward Island to buy a Cape Anne, then sailed it back to his home on Ungava Bay - a considerable journey by any measure.

(Btw, some Nfldrs, though certainly not all, take offence at the term 'Newfie').
