Greg Walsh – a Newfoundland archivist and musician

December 11, 2008

This interview originally appeared on Memorial University of Newfoundland podcast on November 21, 2008. Greg Walsh is the recipient of the 2008 Horizon Award recognizing an extraordinarily successful young alumni. At the age of 33, he is the youngest provincial archivist in Canada and a musician and songwriter coming from a long line of traditional Newfoundland musicians. I hope you enjoy the full interview. It runs at about 8 minutes and in the background you can hear one of Walsh’s songs, The Passing of the Years. I find his story about his community and his commitment to his work fascinating.
