Previously scheduled for March 9, 2022.
One of Canada’s most treasured musicians, Alan Doyle, returns with his ace six-piece band for the Rough Side Out Tour. Doyle was the lead singer of the iconic Canadian band Great Big Sea, known for fusing traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. His fourth solo album continues to cement Doyle’s reputation as one of Canada’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. In Doyle’s words, “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.”
Alan doyle will be joined by special guest Chris Trapper!
Chris Trapper – The trick to the irresistibly organic, pure pop sound is that the music, and even the lead singer, take a back seat to the real star: the songs. As the principal songwriter and singer for nationally acclaimed alt-rock trio The Push Stars, Chris Trapper is equally sure-footed in his solo career. When on hiatus from The Push Stars, Chris writes, records, and tours in support of his solo CD’s.
“Trapper sounds like the 21st-century young popster he is.” – The Washington Post
His words and music can best be described as an interesting blend of 1950s pop, 1990s rock, and old-timey jazz with the ever-present understory of Chris’; distinctive barite nor. It’s intricate power-pop with a compelling knack for telling everyday stories.
His ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each collection. His organic understanding of classic pop melody is infectious. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders.
Chris Trapper continues to tour both regionally and nationally and has shared the stage with such illustrious contemporaries as Rob Thomas, Martin Sexton, Great Big Sea, Guster, Jess Klein and most recently, 80’s pop-icon Graham Parker. Trapper’s list of awards and accomplishments is equally impressive including several prestigious SOCAN writing awards and certified gold and platinum for his work with Canadian celtic-rock band “Great Big Sea”.
“His humble sense of humility is what makes Trapper’s songs so strong… He makes you feel like you are the person he’s singing about.” – Popdose
