Where I Belong:
Small Town to Great Big Sea
with Alan Doyle

Hosted by CBC's Alan Neal
"A rolling, jaunty, whiskey-laced ballad, an ode, if you will, that will have you thirsting for more. When I turned the last page, I honestly felt sad. I didn’t want it to end.
— Jann Arden

Join host Alan Neal for a conversation (and possibly a song or two) with Alan Doyle, the lead singer, songwriter and front man of the band Great Big Sea and author of Where I Belong , a lyrical and captivating musical memoir about growing up in the tiny fishing village of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, and then taking to the world stage. 

 

Alan Doyle is also a wonderful storyteller and a creative force. In Where I Belong, he paints a vivid, raucous and heartwarming portrait of a curious young lad born into a small coastal fishing community and destined to become a renowned musician who carries the musical tradition of generations before him and has brought his signature sound to the world. 

 

Filled with the lore and traditions of the East Coast and told in a voice that is at once captivating and refreshingly candid, this is a narrative journey about small-town life, curiosity and creative fulfillment, and finally, about leaving everything you know behind only to learn that no matter where you go, home will always be with you.
