These songs offered by Joe are unique songs, mostly about Newfoundland. These, for the most part are true stories and are very interesting to listen to. Most people say if you listen to any of these songs you will be hooked and will end up buying the CD. Newfoundland is rich in heritage and the song (Storm of 45) will tell you why, it is a true story about a man that saved a woman's life in a raging storm and although she lost some fingers and toes she went on to serve in the Salvation Army for the rest of her life. The song (The Trip) is almost 11 minutes long and is a comical story about the ferry trip from North Sydney to Port Aux Basque. If you have ever traveled there (scatter few thousand) you will be able to relate to it. Nanny Barrett is also a true story about a woman that was a midwife who delivered 165 babies on the northern peninsula of Newfoundland and lived to be 101 years young. The Viking Trail tells it all and describes what it is like when you visit there (GREAT SONG). Joe makes his home in Blackfalds, AB Canada and has recorded in Nashville (11 years) Enjoys writing and singing his own songs.
