Canadian Folk Music Awards Nominee Dave Penny in Concert

New Bedford, MA – The New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center is pleased to host Canadian Folk Music Awards Nominee Dave Penny in concert on Saturday, November 10th at 7:00 p.m. Penny brings original and traditional songs of Newfoundland to New Bedford.   Dave Penny has been a steady presence on the Newfoundland folk scene as a composer of songs that are truly unique to Newfoundland and Labrador. He has been a key figure in resurgence in popularity of Newfoundland recitations, along the way contributing popular pieces like Johnny Chrome and A Townie Courted a Bayman’s Daughter to the local folk repertoire.

Dave’s second and most recent recording, All Turned Around, was nominated for a 2017 Music NL award for Celtic/Traditional Artist of the Year and a 2017 Canadian Folk Music Award for Traditional Singer of the Year.

Much of Penny’s work is infused with themes and idioms particular to Newfoundland and Labrador like most excellent songwriters, he manages to find the universal elements of those localized experiences. –  Jean Hewson, Penguin Eggs Magazine
