Welcome to my Great Big Sea page!! I was first introduced to the b'ys in 1995 when their second album "Up" was released. Since then I have become a member of the Great Big Cult and The Friends of Great Big Sea

The B'ys

The members of Great Big Sea are:
Alan Doyle (vocals, guitar, bouzouki, mandolin)
Sean McCann (vocals, bodhran, tin whistle, snare drum, acoustic guitar)
Darrell Power (vocals, bass, bones, harmonica)
Bob Hallett (vocals, button accordion, tin whistle, fiddle, mandolin, mandola, concertina

The b'ys were born and raised in Newfoundland. They grew up listening to the traditional music that they play. They met at university where they were all studying English. After getting their degrees, the band was formed, and named after a traditional Newfoundland song; Great Big Sea.

The Music

Great Big Sea have released four albums. Their debut self-titled album was released in 1993, followed by Up in 1995, and Play in 1997. In 1998 Great Big Sea released Rant and Roar. It was aimed at an American audience and combined the best songs from Up and Play. Their music is a combination of traditional and original songs. For lyrics to all the GBS albums click here!!
