Newfoundland’s Contemporary Celtic musician Alan Doyle and his band returns to the Concert Hall on Sunday, February 10, 2019. Actor, producer, best-selling author, and lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, Doyle released his third solo album, “A Week at The Warehouse”, and embarks on a North American tour in support of the album release.
Doyle’s desire was to have an album that sounded and felt like the live show, and “A Week at The Warehouse” does just that. Lead single “Summer, Summer Night” is a co-write with long-time collaborator Thomas “Tawgs” Salter Doyle had it in mind to write a Celtic country song about summer nights in Petty Harbour when he was a young adult, playing guitar and singing with his friends around a bonfire on the beach. Then there’s the ukulele and whistling ditty “Beautiful to Me”, also co-written with Tawgs Salter. This one, Doyle says, is a response to an attempt in North Carolina to limit the access trans people have to bathrooms in schools. And there’s more of Doyle’s history in “Somewhere in a Song”, a tribute to his parents, who “made us feel like we could handle anything life gave to us,” Doyle says. “It’s a simple homage, a celebration of my mom and dad’s attitude that you spend exactly none of your time worrying about the stuff you don’t have and exactly all your time making the most of what you do have.” It’s an ethos Doyle has adopted whole-heartedly.
