Recitations, Songs, and Tunes

Dave Penny has been playing the accordion and fiddle for twenty years, performing at various venues and festivals around the province.  In 2006 he started writing comic songs and recitations and recorded an album in 2008 called Stories and Strangers, which includes both original and traditional songs and tunes from Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Clever turns of phrase a distinct spin on the unique Newfoundland sense of humour have helped Dave develop a  style that's all his own. Dave has been a fixture at the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival for many years and has drawn sold out crowds as part of the annual From Stage to Stage show.

Dave lives in St. John’s with his son Kaleb.
