Call­ing for con­cert mem­o­ries

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

Dear edi­tor,

The Her­itage Foun­da­tion of New­found­land and Labrador needs your help with their most cur­rent com­mu­nity folk­lore pro­ject. We have started to gather in­for­ma­tion about old-time con­certs in the Bac­calieu Trail area.

We need help gather­ing peo­ples’ mem­o­ries about old-time con­certs in the area and are hop­ing that some of you may be able to help by pro­vid­ing us with yours.

We will be in­ter­view­ing peo­ple about their mem­o­ries of both com­mu­nity and school con­certs, and putting those record­ings on­line in part­ner­ship with Me­mo­rial Univer­sity’s Dig­i­tal Archive Ini­tia­tive. The col­lec­tion will be used by stu­dents and re­searchers look­ing for in­for­ma­tion on New­found­land tra­di­tions.

I’d be re­ally in­ter­ested in peo­ple who have mem­o­ries of drills, recita­tions, and skits.

If you have a mem­ory about con­certs and are will­ing to be recorded for our on­line Old Time Con­cert Col­lec­tion please con­tact Melissa at the Her­itage Foun­da­tion by call­ing 1-888-739-1892 ext. 3 or email­ing ich­pro­grams@gmail.com
