Great Big Sea - Safe Upon The Shore

Im not usually one to like rock/celtic music (a la Gaelic Storm, even though they surprised me when I saw them on the Rock Boat last year) but a friend of mine just turned me on to Great Big Sea’s new album and its actually really good. Its definitely more of a rock record through and through but it still has some of the celtic roots overtop. And this band has been around for like 17 years with a TON of albums. Can anyone shed some light on any of their older stuff???

Thumbs up Great Big Sea - Great Big Music Excellence

Their new album has a great mix of Newfoundland and New Orleans flavour mixed in. Their older albums are all great.
Their authentic Newfoundland soul comes through in their music, even the "rock" songs have a hint of it, so if you liked "Long Life" and "Nothing But a Song", try a listen to previous albums Fortunes Favour and Sea of No Cares.

If you love "Don't Wanna Go Home" as much I do, you can't really go wrong with much of their music.

They are even better in concert, put on a Fantastic show, as Alan is wont to say "The Biggest Kitchen Party in the History of the World!!!!". All of them are great show men and artists. I am pretty sure Alan and Sean can sing any song they try with fantastic sound, Bob is a true multi instrument master from the whitsle to the accordian to fiddle, he is amazing. Murray has that great deep voice that ties everything together and Chris can play anything, he knows the drum line to any song they have ever thrown at him in all the shows we have seen.

Never a better time than standing up at a show singing along to General Taylor as they belt it.

Love these guys, the music is upbeat and brings joy and I am proud they are Canadian representing us so well.

I hope you take the time to listen to more and you will see what the fuss is about and well worth it.
