The Duo


For the past 35 years,  Jean Hewson and Christina Smith have been ambassadors of Newfoundland culture, bringing the music and songs of their Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador to festival, concert and folk club audiences in North America and Europe.   They are the recipients of the Ernie King Tradition Bearer award from the Celtic Roots Festival, Goderich, Ontario.  Their music has been broadcast nationally by the Canadian Broadcasting Coorporation, and their CDS Like Ducks!  and August Gale (Borealis) have received multiple nominations and awards.

“Among my personal highlights were catching Jean Hewson and Christina Smith on the main stage with a beautiful set of songs and tunes. This was my first time seeing them live. They provided a wonderful half-hour of superbly crafted music. If you ever have the opportunity to see Jean and Christina I heartily recommend you do so. You will not be disappointed. I was rapt.”  – David Francey
