Tanglecove in Ontario
We completed a Home Routes tour of
rural Ontario in November with a series of intimate house concerts.  We will be posting videos of our travel and we are working on a new song written on that tour.

We thank Home Routes, the staff at Westjet and Payless Car Rental for their support.



Tanglecove performed concerts in Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, then travelled through Alberta and dipped into Saskatchewan to perform a series of house concerts in April.   We  thank Home Routes, ViaRail and the NL Arts Council for help along the way, and also our wonderful house concert hosts.

Tanglecove on Tour
our new live recording was launched at the Ship Pub in St. John's Thursday,

Tanglecove's first 

CD and Book of

Fiddle Tunes

Our book has been adopted as a learning resource by the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Education. 185 copies have been distributed to our province's schools.   We will provide instructional materials and new arragements of the tunes, on this website in response to requests from teachers, students and other musicians.


The book includes slow airs, schottishes, marches, waltzes, jigs, reels, freilachs and Newfoundland singles.  Each tune is accompanied by chords, a vivid illustration and the story of its creation. A preface by fiddler and teacher Christina Smith (founder of the STEP Fiddlers) and a foreword with notes for string players and music teachers, written by registered music teacher Caryl Clark, add to the usefulness of the book.


This collection will appeal to young players, teachers and performers because of the power and diversity of the tunes.   The book also honours major figures in East Coast traditional music – accordionists Art Stoyles, Frank Maher and Stan Pickett, bagpiper Ian McKinnon and fiddlers Emile Benoit, Rufus Guinchard and Seamus Creagh – who are recognized for their contributions to local musical traditions.
