Sunday morning music

Here are a couple of songs from a Newfoundland folk group, Figgy Duff.  They only put out five albums during their time together, but their music remains as haunting as ever.  I chose both of these from their album 'After the Tempest'.

First, the opening number, 'Honor, Riches', which segues into a dance, 'Breakwater Boys Breakdown'.

Next, a lovely ballad, 'A Sailor Courted a Farmer's Daughter'.

I highly recommend Figgy Duff to lovers of folk and folk-rock music.  You'll find a lot of their songs on YouTube, and all their recordings are available on
