WAM Nov17-18 Liner Notes Great Big Sea

Time now for Liner Notes.... Twenty years ago they started out with a vision to build a career by playing the music of their ancestors for anyone who would listen. Since then they have toured the world, collected wallfuls of gold and platinum records and rubbed shoulders with a who's who on the international music scene. Now with the release of their 20th anniversary box set,"XX" which has gone gold, Great Big Sea can safely say,"mission accomplished". But GBS are not ready to rest on their royalties just yet. Collectively they are booked on a cross country tour due to start in the new year while pursuing individual projects. One could say that they were," Born To Believe".
