Fogo Island

Fogo Island Accordion Group with another great Newfoundland tune

Gerald Freake, a teacher at Venture Academy in Fogo Island, formed the Fogo Island Accordion Group in fall of 1991. It started as an after-school project called "Accordion Class".  Mr. Freake recognized 5 great musical talents: Serena Adams, Heather Penton, Jennifer Furlong, Melanie Penton and Angie Penton and that's how the Fogo Island Accordion Group was born.
This tune is from the CD Land and Sea (2011).
