This is a fine song.

I'd only previously heard the Dubliners version along with the reel on the end.

Someone played the reel in the sesh last night, & it prompted me to seek out the song as a poss addition to my repertoire.

Surprised to find its a Dave Mallet composition, tho' it fits as its a Newfoundland theme.

Also just listened to John Denver's version & 'tho its a lot different to the Dubs, its reely good & much more appropriate, given a north American lilt!

I don't understand the "much more appropriate" comment, or what a "north American lilt" is. Or the "Newfoundland theme" for that matter. There's nothing "inappropriate" about the Dubliners' version.

(I don't mean to sound grouchy, but I'm sick and, um, grouchy at the moment).

Canada's four Atlantic Provinces share a lot of music tradition, but each is distinct unto itself. Prince Edward Island, not Newfoundland, is the setting for the song. It is about Don Messer, a great fiddler who came from New Brunswick to live on PEI. He later moved to Nova Scotia but has I believe, less connection to Newfoundland. Don called his band The Islanders and PEI claimed him as a native son.

To clarify: Marion Parson's song is to the tune of St. Anne's Reel, not to the tune of the Ballad of St. Anne's Reel.

Be forewarned: her song is about Anne of Green Gables.

meself,

Where did I state that the Dubs version was inappropriate?

I really like Ronnie Drew's singing of it.

What I mean is that since JD is American, his rendering is closer to the song's goegraphical roots

Well, I don't want to squabble and quibble, but you did say that JD's version was 'more appropriate', which I took mean to mean that you found the Dubs version at least somewhat 'inappropriate' - sorry if I misunderstood, which I apparently did.

However, if by "the song's goegraphical roots" you mean Prince Edward Island, you may be surprised at the extent of Irish influence on PEI folk culture which is often evident in speech and musical accents. Somewhat less so now than thirty years ago, but then the song was written about thirty years ago. Given that the Dubliners have a distinctive sound even in the context of Irish music, I think you would find a typical rendering of BSAR in a PEI pub on a Saturday night as close to the Dubliners as to John Denver.

I'll do a little nosing around on youtube to see if I can find anything to illustrate. Just for the heck of it.

Thanks, Adrien - that's what I was looking for! That seems to me about half-way between the Dubs and John Denver. I may be mistaken, but I think I detect a couple of affected 'Americanisms' in Gordon B.'s pronunciations, in the singing - as if he had listened to the JD version one too many times ....

FWIW, here's a good song I came across: Along the North Shore .

And, just because it's a great song, by Eddy Quinn - unfortunately, the sound is a little mushy, so some of the lyrics get lost: The Girl From Gaspereaux .

meself,
Gordon is originally from Alberta. He moved to P.E.I. back in the seventies and since has been adopted as a SPUD. Richard Wood and Gordon will be playing for me on May 30th.

I didn't realize that Gordon is from Alberta - I notice he doesn't advertise the fact on his site ... !

Saw him and Richard last summer - great show. Richard's, um, 'physicality' doesn't do much for me, but he's a phenomenal fiddler. And he and Gordon work well together - you're in for a treat.
