Newfoundland's Alan Doyle, formerly of Great Big Sea, chalks up a lot of where is he right now to luck. "I'm the luckiest guy I've ever even heard of," he says. "This was all I ever wanted, a life in the music business, singing concerts. I was lucky to be born in the family I was, in Petty Harbour. I was lucky that Sean, Bob, and Darrell found me and asked me to join their band. I was lucky the Canadian music fans were into it." And yet, one listen to any of his albums makes it plainly clear that there's a lot more than luck at play in this decades-long, awards-studded career. An Alan Doyle show is chock-a-block with country-tinged, radio-ready tunes that hark back to some of Alan's favorite bands, from John Mellencamp to Payolas, and he's coming to The Ark with a new, as-yet-untitled EP. Recent Alan Doyle shows at The Ark have sold out, so don't delay! Songwriter Chris Trapper, of The Push Stars, is tonight's opener.
