During the biggest global health crisis in a century , singer, songwriter and bestselling author Alan Doyle is off the road and spending more days at home than he has since he was a child hawking cod tongues on the wharfs of Petty Harbour. He misses the crowds and companionship of performing across the country and beyond. But most of all he misses the cheery clamour of pubs in his hometown, where one yarn follows another so quickly "you have to be as ready as an Olympian at the start line to get your tale in before someone is well into theirs already." We're all experiencing our own version of that deprivation, and Alan, one of Newfoundland's finest storytellers, wants to offer a little balm.

All Together Now is a gathering in book form, a virtual Newfoundland pub. Alan Doyle has never been in better form, nor more welcome. As he says about this troubling time: "We get through it. We do what has to be done. Then, we celebrate. With the best of them."
