Living Heritage Podcast Ep182 - Traditional Knowledge on the Baccalieu Trail

Researcher Katie Crane has been compiling a list of people along the Baccalieu Trail who have traditional skills and stories to share. In this episode, we hear from carver and knife-maker Edward Delaney, Kevin Andrews on how to build a wriggle fence, Edwin Bishop an what makes a good boat, Laurie Pitcher on sealskin, Michael Laduke about light and colour in stained glass, Gerry Strong on Newfoundland music, and the importance of Tickle Cove Pond with singer Ernie Pynn. Florence Hurley introduces us to fairy music, while Judy Symonds teaches us to cure arthritis, and Ralph Barrett explains the value of spider webs.


Living Heritage 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.
