Cultural Tourism Award
Sullivan’s Songhouse was very humbled and grateful to have been awarded the ‘Cultural Tourism Award’ for 2022 presented by Hospitality NL and Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism at this years HNL Conference at the Delta Hotel in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The award recognizes the offering of an enhanced product and/or experience that celebrates the inherent value of a community’s culture, heritage and lifestyle.
The ‘SONGS’ go way back
The idea for a ‘Songhouse’ is not that far-fetched when you grow up in a ‘House of Songs’ inspired by your own dear mother.  Here’s a clip from the early 1990’s when myself and my Mom were asked to be part of  a nationally televised  CBC special  ‘The Irish Descendants – Misty Morning Shore’ produced by Southern Shore’s own Gary O’Driscoll and Leo Williams.  The show went on to win the USA Gabriel Award for Excellence in Entertainment Programming.  We still carry on this wonderful tradition today at Sullivan’s Songhouse.’
2023 Season Opening
We will be opening the Songhouse on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023 and continuing twice weekly until late October.  
Sullivan’s Songhouse – On the road!

While returning home from a golf trip in Florida, Sean Sullivan and Sheldon Thornhill along with a few good buddies had some time to spare while waiting to board their Westjet flight to Newfoundland.As he often does, Sheldon decided to take out his accordion and start playing. Sean quickly joined in. Before they knew it there were dozens of people gathered around and joining in on what quickly became a Newfoundland Kitchen Party, much like you will find at Sullivans Songhouse!There were videos taken and shared on Facebook which quickly went viral!
