From the Burin Peninsula town of Bull’s Cove, Fred Jorgensen is a legendary and veteran player of the tin whistle and bodhran. A strong vocalist with amazing range and an unmistakable voice, his performances have been described as entertaining, energetic, and dynamic.
As a founding member of the well-known Newfoundland folk group Fine Crowd, he recorded two popular albums (Poverty’s Arse and Sucker For Good Company) and gained the MIANL Song of the Year in 1996 with Hugh Scott’s “Theresa Maria”. Fred is currently a member of the Navigators and has been thrilling audiences across the country and internationally. Fred has also lent his talent to many other recording projects and groups over the years.
Fred makes a semi-regular appearance at the Newfoundland Embassy Pub and Eatery on Saturday nights when his schedule with the Navigators permits – entertaining capacity crowds with his unique voice and traditional song choices.
