Hey All

A quick note about the details for a Roving Festival Downtown Festival we are pulling together to raise money to help the Red Cross help the victims of the fires in Fort McMurray.

Thanks for all the interest, buzz, and support. See you downtown, or if you can’t attend and would like to support, a quick and easy way to donate $5 is to text REDCROSS to 30333 and follow two simple prompts.

Thanks to all who volunteered their time, talents, and spaces.

Cheers,
Alan

East to West-With Love #yyt4ymm
All of us here behind East to West – with Love are overwhelmed with the support flowing in, we can’t begin to express our gratitude to all for lending a hand for our friends in Fort McMurray who so desperately need it.

Here’s the details. Thursday, May 12, 2016. This will not be your traditional concert. It will run as a pop-up festival, a travelling circus of musicians moving throughout the downtown core in what is sure to be a one of a kind, intimate and collaborative effort for one cause. Three venues. Factory on McMurdos Lane, the home and origin of the fundraiser, starts it off early with doors at 3pm and music starting at 4. Erin’s on Water Street and O’Reilly’s on George Street are open regular pub hours with music starting at 5. Over 30 acts will play in one or more of these venues with the likes of Alan Doyle, Tim Baker, and Matt Mays making appearances at all three over the course of the evening. Full list below.*

Representatives from the Red Cross will be on hand at each venue to accept suggested minimum donations of $10 for entrance and encourage digital and texting contribution throughout the night.

Pre-Order ‘Where I Belong’

June 10th, 2014

Hey all,

Thanks so much for all the interest in my book Where I Belong. It’s a rowdy journey through the cod tongues, altars, girls and guitars of my young life in Petty Harbour. I’m gonna be signing a few and if you’d like one, you can pre order one right here. I had a blast writing it and really hope you all enjoy reading it, too.

Where I Belong

Cheers,
Alan

Regrettably, due to a sudden death in my family, I am unable to attend Saturday’s concert. I was really looking forward to sharing the stage with the Barras and all the other guests, as I know it will be a great night. I hope you all enjoy the evening. Merry Christmas.
