Home Town of Alan Doyle

Alan doyle


Alan Doyle, the frontman of the iconic folk-rock band Great Big Sea, was born in Petty Harbour in 1969. Alan wrote about his childhood in Petty Harbour in his book Where I Belong.

“My mother, my father, and just about all my uncles played music probably a hundred days of every year…. [a]fter all, we were Doyles, we carried music in our blood.”

He returns to Petty Harbour a few times a year, often to play music for local concerts.
