Contemporary Celtic singer-songwriter Alan Doyle returns to perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.
Doyle shifts his musical emphasis with natural ease while remaining true to the traditions of the place and people which form his artistic foundations.
These truths hold on his latest release. “Back to the Harbour” is a folk record. Its’ arrangements only lightly adorned, the lyrics direct. Absent are drums and bass, as Doyle was performing select shows as a trio when circumstances aligned serendipitously.
“I had a few free days while touring around the Atlantic Bubble in November,” explains Doyle breezily. “Nipped into Joel Plaskett’s amazing New Scotland Yard studio with Cory (Tetford) and Kendel (Carson). We recorded six songs in three days right off the floor directly into an old tape machine.” The recording has an immediate, intimate feeling; poignant in its clarity with themes identifiably characteristic of the Atlantic but simultaneously universal in sentiment. “Back to the Harbour” sounds as though it were performed in the listener’s living room.
