Craig Young hails from the southwest coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Craig’s
guitar playing career has spanned decades and countries. From the age of three, Craig

the age of ten in rural Newfoundland where he was born. A lifetime of guitar playing
has created a story woven with lyrics and guitar as told in a simple baritone voice with
dynamic flatpicking. Ocean blue grass music from the heart.
