This pandemic still has us in it's hold, but we are forging ahead with some songs from our roots side. No Townie Girl Was I was written after we returned from a trip to Newfoundland. Joy was attending a conference so Fredrick was able to explore the sights and enjoy the company of the warm hearted Newfoundlanders. They shared their cafe breakfast tables with him, let him into buildings to explore after hours and they shared stories from their hearts... and there is nothing better for a writer than to hear the tales of the land and the people.
This song is Kay's story who left her small coastal village on the east coast of the island to follow her love to St John's. After raising her family, he left her and she was in the process of making a decision to return to her village.
