Description

“Saltwater Joys” is perhaps one of the most popular and well-known songs to come out of Newfoundland and Labrador. Written by Wayne Chaulk of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers, the song is a celebration of the simple pleasures of outport life.

 

This beloved song is now available in book form, with Dawn Baker’s stunning illustrations capturing the joys of living in Newfoundland. From enjoying quiet mornings in the cove, to admiring icebergs in the spring and brightly coloured leaves in the fall, to breathing in the salty ocean smells and watching the sun set over the water, the words to the song come alive within these pages.
Complete with sheet music at the back, Saltwater Joys is as beautiful as the song that inspired it.

About the Authors
Wayne Chaulk was born in Charlottetown, Newfoundland. After graduating from Memorial University, Wayne returned to his beloved Bonavista Bay, and for the next fifteen years, he devoted himself to his teaching career. But when Ray Johnson and Kevin Blackmore moved to Glovertown, the die was cast, and Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers was born. Wayne turned his affection for rural Newfoundland and its people to the craft of songwriting, and the result has been a collection of lyrical gems, such as “Saltwater Joys.”
