Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a pint?

Duke of Duckworth

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Newfoundland & Labrador?

O’Brien’s Music Store on Water Street in St. John’s.

What's the one meal you miss the most when you're away?

My mother’s goulash and Jigg’s dinner.

Where in Newfoundland & Labrador would we stand to see your favourite view?

You would stand on the hill above the town of Bishop’s Falls where you can see the entire town, the beautiful Exploits River and the trestle that crosses it.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Newfoundland & Labrador:

1. Western Brook Pond

2. The lighted trestle in Bishop’s Falls that crosses the Exploits River.

3. Drive to the edge of all peninsulas. ie. Bonavista, Burin, etc. Stop and chat with people you see along the way.

What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

It's my home. Living in Toronto these days, the one thing I realized after being here a while is that people from other provinces, don’t really long to go or to move “home”. There always a sense of relief when I land at YYT.
It continually calls you back. All my buds are there, and I know the island very well. I have been in pretty much every town in Newfoundland, and have performed in a lot of them.
