“The Hard and The Easy” is the eighth release from Great Big Sea, the St. John's-based, Juno-nominated band that fuses Newfoundland traditional music with modern pop in a crowd-pleasing formula both heartfelt and vital. Great Big Sea's blend of instruments like mandolin, bodhran, fiddle, and concertina, along with their vocal harmonies, revels in the melodies they create and the Newfoundland tunes they love.

“ The Hard and The Easy” is the follow-up to “Something Beautiful” (2004). This solid and straightforward acoustic album of traditional and local songs is a first for singers and multi-instrumentalists Sean McCann, Alan Doyle and Bob Hallett, but it's also a logical progression. Newfoundland music and Newfoundland culture are both their genesis, and their raison d'etre.
