Where I Belong
From Small Town to Great Big SeaBook - 2014
From the lead singer of the band Great Big Sea comes a memoir about growing up in the tiny fishing village of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, and then taking to the world stage. Alan paints a vivid and raucous portrait of a curious young lad born into the small coastal fishing community of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, a childhood surrounded by larger-than-life characters who made an indelible impression on his music and work; of his first job on the wharf cutting out cod tongues for fishermen; of growing up in a family of five in a two-bedroom house with a beef-bucket as a toilet, yet lacking nothing; of learning at his father's knee how to sing the story of a song and learning from his mother how to simply "be good." Small-town life, curiosity and creative fulfillment, and finally, about leaving everything you know behind only to learn that no matter where you go, home will always be with you.
