English | 2020 | Biographies & Memoirs | ePUB |4.3 MB
One of Newfoundland’s funniest and most beloved storytellers offers his cure for the Covid blues.
Is there a more sociable province than Newfoundland and Labrador? Or anywhere in Canada with a greater reputation for coming to the rescue of those in need?
At this time of Covid, singer, songwriter and bestselling author Alan Doyle is feeling everyone’s pain. Off the road and spending more days at home than he has since he was a child hawking cod tongues on the wharfs of Petty Harbour, he misses the crowds and companionship of performing across the country and beyond. But most of all he misses the cheery clamour of pubs in his hometown, where one yarn follows another so quickly “you have to be as ready as an Olympian at the start line to get your tale in before someone is well into theirs already.” We’re all experiencing our own version of that deprivation, and Alan, one of Newfoundland’s finest storytellers, wants to offer a little balm.
