People - Billy Price, Singer
Billy Price, was a guide and lumbermen from New Brunswick. Billy, along with his cousin Everett Price, sang and recited many songs for Sandy Ives and other folklorists working in the Maritimes. Though some people thought this song was written by Everett, it was actually the work of Billy’s grandfather, Abraham Munn (pronounced “Moon”). Billy performed the song at the 5th annual Miramichi Folksong Festival in 1962.
