Classic Canadian Songs from Smithsonian Folkways

The traditional nineteenth-century folk song "I's the B'y" paints a quaint picture of life in Newfoundland's remote outports. Generations of Canadian schoolchildren "from away" have delighted in its infectious dance rhythms, sing-along chorus, and such Newfoundland expressions as "sods and rinds to cover yer flake" and "codfish in the spring o' the year, fried in maggoty butter."
