Alan Doyle, actor, producer, newly minted bestselling author, and best known as lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, performs at Meaford Hall in support of his latest solo record, So Let’s Go. The title track lead single, is a rousing rallying cry that’s only further proof of Doyle’s ability to draw the listener under his banner. “If there’s an overarching theme on this record, it’s one of optimism…not that this is in contrast to my previous doomladen songs!” laughs Doyle, who says this album is freer than his first solo album, 2012’s Boy On Bridge, in the respect of being open to all influences. “On my last solo record I wanted to explore musical backyards of friends of mine in different parts of the musical world. It was as much a physical as a musical journey away from home.” A nontraditional marriage for Doyle was writing his first book simultaneously with the album, the bestselling memoir Where I Belong. The album’s eponymous song is consistent with Alan Doyle’s ethos: we’re lucky to be here so let’s make the most of it. Alan Doyle hails from Petty Harbour, NL, and formed Great Big Sea in 1993 with Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, in which they fused traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada. So Let’s Go continues to cement Alan Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.”
