“The Southern Shore Queen” songwriter Gertrude Carew Cahill lets "the cat out of the bag" to Downhomer newspaper (now Downhome magazine/online) – revealing she composed the cherished song when, at age 12 or 13, she’s at home in Shore’s Cove. In her own words, then, the song’s performed here by Allison Crowe who so loved learning about Gertrude and this music from Cape Broyle, NL. GEST Songs of NFLD has lyrics and variants along with the first recording of Gertrude’s song –from Omar Blondahl’s 1958 album, “A Visit to Newfoundland” @ http://gestsongs.com/25/queen.htm And GEST offers a rocking repertoire of music from Allison @ http://gestsongs.com/acrowe.htm Newfoundland Vinyl IV https://allisoncrowe.bandcamp.com/album/newfoundland-vinyl-iv-2 The lovely isle of Newfoundland, off Canada’s Atlantic coast, is inspiration for this collection – the newest in the “Vinyl” series from Corner Brook, NL musician Allison Crowe. Allison’s in harbour with a boatful of tunes reveling in, and revealing, the region’s rich culture and history – stirring music that nourishes heart and soul. The album opens with "Mice March" and closes with "Russian Dance", both selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” – freshly arranged and performed “trad” style for Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador’s “Ed & Ed’s Newfoundland Christmas Concert”. And between these tracks is a bounty of adventuresome musical ideas – embracing songs of land and sea. Traditional music, and modern favourites – funny, poignant, earthy and ethereal – all part of the “Newfoundland Vinyl” stage-show lovingly curated and directed by Allison Crowe each Summer at TNL’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival. The album cover photograph by Allison shows us what she sees at home making music. And the songs themselves let us feel it all, as well. Joys and hardships be tugging on the heart-line first cast by Buddy Wasisname, and true as ever: “You might think she’s rugged and cold, but she’s home, sweet, home to me.” Credits: Allison Crowe: all vocals, instruments, engineering and production.
