Born in a tiny rural Newfoundland fishing village, Tony has lived and learned the charm of outport living. Although at the insistence of his father he choose a career path other than fishing, he has kept a close eye on the fishery’s evolution. In many of his provincial, regional and local volunteer roles he has been a strong and outspoken advocate for rural Newfoundland. Since 2005, he has enjoyed the opportunity to present the music, language and culture of his province. He is always delighted to visit tiny and sometimes remote communities and is eager to help share and celebrate the essence of his home.
Tony is a musician, cultural advocate, and proud Newfoundlander.
