ALAN DOYLE Extended Feature Interview

Posted: July 1, 2013

ALAN DOYLE and GREAT BIG SEA XXIt's been a long time comin'....

But after 3 years of hoping, wishing and praying...the stars have aligned and I FINALLY got my interview with ALAN DOYLE.

I was thrilled to meet up the Petty Harbour, NL native while he was in Halifax to perform at this year's Raise a Little HELLp Event to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

As you'll find out from the interview - Mr.Doyle is as busy as ever and happy for it.

We had a chance to chat about everything from the big anniversary to his time on the big screen to his next BIG project and so much more - it was lovely and well worth the wait!

Currently on the summer of leg of the Great Big Sea XX Tour - Alan and his band mates Bob Hallett and Séan McCann will be back in the Maritimes next for the Riverfront Jubilee in New Glasgow, NS on August 4th and then to their homeland to play the George Street Festival on August 6.

Portions of this same interview were used in the "Songwriters Special" of SEA AND BE SCENE TV - that's why it's been billed as an "Extended" interview - plus we'll have a special REDUX edition of INsights IN 10 with Alan that will post within the next week or so so stay tuned - in the meantime please enjoy this video.
