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.
We’re back up the Southern Shore for Paddy’s Day! - March 18th, 2017
Sláinte is delighted to announce that we will once again be playing a St. Patrick’s Day concert in the Irish Heart of Newfoundland on Saturday night, March 18th at 8:00 P.M. It is a great honour for Sláinte to be invited back to the Regional Arts Centre in Ferryland for the 4th year in a row.
Opening the show for Slainte will be the very talented Katie Barbour. Katie, a Ferryland native, is a multi-instrumentalist and fantastic singer. It’s a treat for Slainte to share the stage with her. And speaking of treats – we understand there well may be another performance that night coming right from Ireland itself! Stay tuned for information on this feature.
Tickets are available from the Southern Shore Folk Arts Council Office at 1-888-332-2052 or 432-2052 to purchase by Visa. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Also tickets are sold locally at the Ferryland Foodland, Cape Broyle Ultramar, and Riverside Restaurant in Cape Broyle.
