Figgy Duff biography

Figgy Duff was a Canadian folk-rock band from Newfoundland. They played a major role in the Newfoundland cultural renaissance of the 1970s and 80s. Formed in 1976 by Noel Dinn, who named the band after a kind of traditional white pudding, Figgy Duff travelled across Newfoundland, learning traditional songs. They performed with some distinct elements of rock and roll. They began working with Island Records early, though the album that resulted has yet to be released. Instead, they released their independent self-titled debut album: Figgy Duff (1980). It was followed by After The Tempest, in 1982. Throughout the next thirteen years, Figgy Duff continued touring and released three studio albums: Weather Out The Storm (1989), Downstream (1993), Retrospective (1995). The line-up changed several times, but the core of Dinn and Pamela Morgan, singer-songwriter, stayed the same. Their Weather Out the Storm was nominated for a 1991 Juno Award. Dinn died of cancer in 1993, and Morgan disbanded Figgy Duff soon after.
