Newfoundland (or ‘Newfoundland The Band’, as we are known in certain parts of the world) are currently involved in numerous projects, covering a number of art forms as well as covering a lot of ground at home and abroad. Here are some other projects we are involved in. All projects are currently self funded initiatives.
Brew The Bones-
Brew The Bones are a five piece original, traditional style band. The project was launched at Waterford’s Spraoi Festival this summer on the Main Stage in John Robert’s Square and was described as one of the highlights of the festival. The band writes their own songs and traditional style tunes, combining traditional elements with contemporary and alternative ideas. You can find the Brew The Bones Facebook page here.
Waters Wide is a brand new theatre show made up of music, song, stories, poetry, dance and visual arts from Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The show opened to a packed house at The Strand Theatre as part of The Clancy Brothers Festival in Carrick on Suir this June. The show was described as ‘beautiful’, ‘amazing’ and ‘about to make waves in Irish theatre’. The show marries three origins of Celtic culture through different art forms.

Measca (meaning mix in irish) is a dynamic and versatile 5-piece cover band, who combine traditional instrumentation with driving bass and drums. The members of the group are adept on a range of instruments including guitar, violin, banjo, mandolin etc and are all confident vocalists.
Measca are currently very busy on the pub circuit around Ireland, before returning to Oslo, Norway where they and Newfoundland have built up quite a following. More info can be found at http://www.measca.com
