Alan Doyle has spent most of his life onstage either playing tunes with his old band Great Big Sea or on his own. Now, he’s bringing his acting chops with him. His new musical, Tell Tale Harbour, is based on the Quebecois film The Grand Seduction. It's the charming story of a small down-on-its-luck fishing town and the townspeople's efforts to get things back on track. Doyle joined Tom Power to tell us why he thinks the story is so perennial and how he went about putting it to music.
