Nicky Swann / Audio Nicky Swann - New Found Lands
For four centuries from the 1500s, ships sailed from Devon to Newfoundland to fish for cod. Many of the men involved in this lucrative but dangerous trade were recruited in the local inns. They sailed in spring to work throughout the summer months, returning home in autumn. A song of sacrifice, longing and hope, told by those left behind.
Opening track from Nicky's second album "How Does Your Land Lie?"
