Newfoundland are a traditional / contemporary / folk band from the South East of Ireland



The band hail from the South East of Ireland and got their name from the connection between their home region and Canada’s Newfoundland, where many Irish emigrants settled long ago.

With an ongoing interest in other places and people, our new video, shot and edited by Colin Shanahan of DigiCol Photography and Media Production, showcases the beauty of the place that we are proud to call ‘home’. Here is ‘The Parting Glass’, dedicated to the people of the South East of Ireland.

With all the members of the band being vocalists and multi-instrumentalists, Newfoundland have created a signature sound that they have become well known for, putting their own stamp on traditional and contemporary tunes as well as creating their own original pieces blended with trad and contemporary folk elements.

The band has a very wide ranged musical repertoire with vast experience and knowledge in the traditional musical world of folklore, legends and Irish emigration stories of times past, along with individually holding a rich and talented history in music, performance and entertaining.

In the last year, Newfoundland have toured in Germany, Norway, Canada, UK, Denmark and Malaysia, as well as touring extensively at home in Ireland. Check out the band’s upcoming tour dates here!
