With Special Guest Dustin Bentall
Newfoundland-based singer/songwriter Alan Doyle was already a successful solo artist when he founded Great Big Sea. As the group’s main vocalist, Doyle has taken his music to millions of people, fusing Newfoundland traditional music with their own pop sensibilities. After 19 years with Great Big Sea, Doyle is charting his own territory with a new solo record and show. Boy on Bridge, due in May, is a mix of country, rock and blues, all showcasing Doyle’s trademark vocals.
Vancouver’s Dustin Bentall specializes in the “cosmic American music” of the Byrds, Gram Parsons, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. His latest record, “Six Shooter,” has earned accolades across Canada and garnered opening act slots for Kathleen Edwards and John Prine.
