VIDEO: The most interesting people in Newfoundland | Mark Cormier

This week in his series, Martin Connelly interviews Mark Cormier — and gets a song

Mark Cormier, of Cape St. George, is a singer, a storyteller and a retired teacher. He and his brother Jack once placed second in an international maritime song contest held in France — playing in front of 10,000 people. “They loved us over there,” he said, “they thought our accents were cute.”

The Most Interesting People In Newfoundland is a series of video profiles — one that asks fascinating people to define themselves as individuals and as Newfoundlanders. Some will be familiar, others less so, but each has a story to tell.
