This important and beautiful book contains 82 notated dance tunes from Mrs. Belle Fennelly, the Southern Shore accordion legend. The sheet music includes chords and accordion tablature.

In addition, 120 photos and short oral histories outline her biography and depict the changes in life and culture of the Southern Shore of Newfoundland through the 20th century and into the 21st. The book includes a reproduction of tribute artwork by Boyd Chubbs.

The book has 152 pages and is printed on heavy matte-coated text paper stock for extra durability. It is spiral-bound to lay flat, and finished with a matte-laminated wraparound cover with spine.
