TRURO, N.S. – Iconic Newfoundland singer-songwriter, best-selling author, actor and recent recipient of the Order of Canada, Alan Doyle, is coming to Truro in March.
Doyle will perform with his band in support of his latest release, A Week At The Warehouse, at Marigold Centre in Truro on Monday, March 11. They will also be at The Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay on Friday, March 8.
Special guests will be Cassie and Maggie.
A Week At the Warehouse was recorded live off the floor with Doyle’s band and legendary producer Bob Rock at the helm. The album is chock-a-block with country-tinged, radio-ready tunes that carry Doyle’s signature blend of traditional and modern flavours. Rock’s own band, Payola$, is celebrated with a cover of Forever Light Will Shine, which includes a guest vocal from Paul Hyde. The album includes the call to the campfire salvo Summer Summer Night.
Doyle was lead singer of iconic Canadian band Great Big Sea, known for fusing traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double-disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have all been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada.
His third solo album continues to cement Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. In Doyle’s words, “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.”
Nova Scotian sisters Cassie and Maggie are putting their own modern stamp on the province’s Celtic tradition. Cassie and Maggie are 2018 JUNO award nominees, Galaxie Radio Rising Star award winners and 17-time Canadian Folk Music, East Coast Music and Music Nova Scotia award winners and nominees.
They were named Female Singers of the Year by Live Ireland Radio, Female Vocal Album of the Year by Chicago Irish American News, and Album of the Year by NPR’s Celtic Connection – the list goes on."
