The Tin Table: Tales and Songs from Newfoundland

The Tin Table: Tales and Songs from Newfoundland

Anita Best is a ballad singer disguised as a storyteller. Originally from the island of Merasheen in Placentia Bay Newfoundland, she is recognized for her work preserving Newfoundland’s rich culture and oral history. She currently lives in Gros Morne National Park in western Newfoundland. 

“This collection of tales and songs forms a small sampler of the oral tradition I grew up in and am so proud to be a part of,” says Anita. “They are glimpses of an earlier time. I feel honoured to pass them on to another generation of Newfoundlanders and to the world at large.”
