Mark Cormier

Mark Cormier was born at Cape St. George on the Port-au-Port Peninsula, Newfoundland. He comes from a family of fifteen children, ten girls and five boys. Mark grew up in a home environment where accordion music and story telling were commonplace, and language was predominantly French. His love for traditional music and story telling was instilled in him at a very young age and it was not until later in his life that he realized his passion for the two. He went to Memorial University of Newfoundland for four years and then returned home to teach. Teaching and story telling went hand in hand in his class room. He taught for thirty-one years and retired in June 2010. Mark started telling stories in public about five years ago.
