Where I Belong - Small Town to Great Big Sea - Alan Doyle

Your Price: $21.00
Part Number:57329
Singer-songwriter and front man of the great Canadian ban Great Big Sea; Alan Doyle is a storyteller and a creative force. In Where I Belong, he paints a raucous and heart-warming portrait of a curious lad into the small fishing village of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, a lad destined to carry into the world the musical tradition of generations before him with his own signature sound. He tells of a childhood surrounded by larger-than-life characters who made an indelible impression on his music and work; of his first job on the wharf cutting out cod tongues for fishermen; of growing up in a family of five in a two-bedroom house with a beef-bucket as a toilet, yet lacking nothing; of learning at his father’s knee how to sing the story of a song and learning from his mother how to simply “be good”; and finally, of how everything he ever learned as a kid prepared him for that pivotal moment when he joined Great Big Sea and sailed away on the greatest musical adventure of his life. Captivation and refreshingly candid, this is a story about small-town life, curiosity and creativity, and finally, about leaving everything you know behind only to learn that no matter where you go, home will always be with you.
