Rugged Shores is a traditional/folk band based on the east coast of Newfoundland, which first began in 2009.


This upbeat group is able to create the greatest party atmosphere, mainly because they are having so much fun themselves on stage!

Rugged Shores are able to provide all of your favorite traditional music selections, as well as their own renditions of well-loved songs from other genres and also some of their own well-received original music.

The band has some of the most accomplished musicians on the island with a dynamic vocal range that can bring you to tears with a sorrowful Irish ballad, or lead the

crowd in the most rousing, foot stomping sing-a-longs!


Rugged Shores is a five-piece band consisting of Evan Aucoin, Rowan Sherlock,

Jim Feehan, Jeff Kinsman and Bryan Efford

The bands released their debut album "Wild River" in May 2022!
