Linda Hickey, Chair of the Bell Island Heritage Society, tells us all about a new exhibit on Newfoundland accordion player Harry Hibbs coming to the Bell Island Museum on July 25, 2020. We talk about the exhibit, Hibbs' influence on Newfoundland musicians and listeners, and discover that accordion music is alive and well on the island today.
The Living Heritage Podcast is about people who are engaged in the heritage and culture sector, from museum professionals and archivists, to tradition bearers and craftspeople - all those who keep history alive at the community level. The show is a partnership between HeritageNL and CHMR Radio. Theme music is Rythme Gitan by Latché Swing.
