Sláinte (pronounced sa-LON-cha) is a six-piece band centered in Clarenville, NL, Canada.
Specializing in the songs of the North Atlantic with a spattering of other genres aimed at keeping the party in high gear, Sláinte is a big band with a big sound. These six lads with their roots firmly planted in the crevices of the rock on which they live, are proud of where they're from and where their ancestors came from.
That pride shows in every song they perform and every joke they tell. The music, combined with the bantering with the audience is sure to make everyone in the house feel like an important part of a special experience not unlike one would find at any kitchen party in those wonderful outports that dot the Newfoundland coastline.
Our newest CD is now available!!!
This is our first ‘studio produced’ CD so we’re really excited to see how you like it. It contains a number of upbeat traditional songs but it also has 6 original songs written by band members. 4 of them by Denis Sullivan and 2 new ones from Curtis Blackmore, including the title track, Time Well Spent. His second offering, Trottin’ ‘Cross the Bog has also garnered great reviews when we play it at our live shows.
3 of Denis’ were recorded on Slainte’s first CD, which was a live recording at the Clarenville Events Center in 2013. But they have been given a fresh new take in the studio and we think folks will love the ever-popular ‘Cheesie Song’ on this recording. His newest offering, My Mother Sang of Ireland, is recorded here for the first time and we expect it will be a fan favorite.
CD’s are available at O’Brien’s Music and Fred’s Records in St. John’s; A&P Music in Clarenville; the Clarenville Area Co-op; and on-line at www.slaintenl.com
