Collection Title:
  • Donated as part of the Aidan O'Hara collection, this recording was made during the period between 1974 and 1978 when Aidan O'Hara collected the songs of the people from the Cape Shore of Newfoundland. This recording, likely made in Branch where Patsy Judge lived and Aidan tended to record, continues on from the final track of Aidan O'Hara Reel-to-Reel 24. Includes accounts of mummering and other local traditions, beliefs in fairies, and etymology of local dialect. Recordings were made on a portable Uher 200 Report IC reel-to-reel (recordings made in 1978 in conjunction with the collecting efforts of Kenneth S. Goldstein were collected on a Nagra reel-to-reel using professional microphones).
