Canada’s The Once embrace a different vision of Newfoundland music. Hope and tragedy are intertwined in their music, whether they are singing an old lament from World War I, original songs that speak of love defeated, or tasteful songs from the artists whose music inspires them. They have won several East Coast Music and Canadian Folk Music awards, and the country is slowly waking up to just what an amazing band they are.
