Along with Sam Roberts, Great Big Sea has been chosen to entertain the Royal Couple – Prince William and his wife Kate. The performances will take place on Parliament Hill as part of the Canada Day ceremonies on July 1st. The full itinerary of the Royal visit to Ottawa and other Canadian cities is expected to be announced next week. It is known however that the couple will not be visiting our province – so this Great Big news may be comforting to some that at least they will get a taste of Newfoundland culture during their visit to Canada.
