A Newfoundlander in Canada: Alan Doyle in Conversation

Norman Rothstein Theatre

A Vancouver Writers Fest Special Event

Following the runaway success of his bestselling memoir, Where I Belong, Great Big Sea front man Alan Doyle discusses A Newfoundlander in Canada: a hilarious, heartwarming account of discovering Canada through the eyes of the Newfoundlander leaving home for the first time. The author shares never-before-heard stories from the band’s early touring days – including opening for Barney the Dinosaur and drinking moonshine with an elderly churchgoer in PEI – and takes the audience on a journey through the complexities of community, regionalism and the true meaning of ‘Canadianness’.

Alan Doyle is a Canadian musician and actor, best known as a lead singer in the Canadian folk-rock band Great Big Sea. In 2012, Doyle released his first solo album, Boy on Bridge, which made the top twenty on the Canadian Albums chart. Doyle lives in St. John's, Newfoundland.
