If you hang around me for more than five minutes, you will inevitably hear me rhapsodize about Great Big Sea, one of my all-time favorite bands, a lively quintet out of Newfoundland up until they broke up in 2013. I still love ’em to death, not only because their two lead singers were drop-dead gorgeous, not only because of their high-energy folk music, but because they inspired me to resume playing music myself after a long dry spell. I play the guitar because of them. I have a bouzouki because of them. For these things alone, I’ll always love my B’ys. This part of my page is for them!
