From the rocky Atlantic shores of Newfoundland The Navigators have worked their way to the top of the Eastern Canadian Folk/Roots music scene by performing music that is much like the province itself, rocky, energetic, un-predictable, and unforgettable.
Formed in 2000, The Navigators sound is based on two baritone lead singers who complement and contrast each other in ways that create fluid dynamic performances of both original and traditional material. The two lead singers also share lead instrument duties with acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle, tin whistle and bodhran, backed by a stellar rhythm section.
Their third and latest recording, Solders & Sailors is a mix of modern electric and acoustic folk and traditional Irish Newfoundland melodies, steeped in local folklore. Soldiers & Sailors features what Navigator fans have come to expect from their live shows – rollicking upbeat tunes perfect for kitchen parties, but also highlights a deeper, softer more serious side.
Influenced by Newfoundland’s people, history, tragedy and rugged coastal beauty. The Navigators are working on a new sound
recording to be released in fall 2017.
