About this show

Fuse the mist-covered seascapes of their native Newfoundland and an edgy rock sensibility, toss in the energy of Celtic music and the age-old heritage of sea-faring, and you have the unmistakable all-ages appeal of Great Big Sea. Blending mandolin, bodhran, fiddle, banjo, accordion, and concertina with their vocal harmonies, the group's live shows encourage audiences to bounce along to their soulful ballads and rousing jigs. Drawing on a slew of eclectic influences--including Bob Marley, the Clash, Fergus O'Byrne, Ron Hynes, Johnny Cash, and Donal Lunny--their performances are heartfelt and vital. Part indie folk band, part pirate crew, seeing Great Big Sea live is a community experience.
