Best known for his work with Canadian roots-rock institution Great Big Sea, Alan has been packing pubs, theatres, and halls across the country for 30 years. Following up on three brilliant solo albums over the past decade, Alan recorded "We Don't Wanna Go Home", a single with country star Dean Brody in 2019. Add to the mix Alan's philanthropy, his achievements on-screen and his musical collaborations with actor Russell Crowe, and his two bestselling memoirs, and it's easy to see why this award-winning Newfoundlander holds a special place in the hearts of Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
