Album Notes
Newfoundland is known for traditional music, sure. In every tourism pamphlet, in every film setting, in every piece of literature, there's a few lads in the corner on the accordion and fiddle quietly churning out a few traditional tunes. What we can forget is how these traditions can grow.

East Coast Music Association nominees for 2010, The Dardanelles are a by-product of a culture in progress. Armed with a love of the music of their native home, and an energy found more often in 3 piece punk rock bands than in 5-piece folk acts, they have become of the hottest acts to come out of the province in years. After packing bars in their native St. John's, well-known for their live show, they've moved on to playing festivals on the 'mainland'. In August 2009, they performed their first festival outside their province, the Mariposa Folk Festival, to a thunderous ovation. Their debut self-titled CD became one of the top 3 sellers in the province this summer, and they were one of the top 3 sellers in Mariposa as well.

The rest of the world is about to catch on to what Newfoundland has known for years - The Dardanelles will change the way you think about folk music.
