Al Halliday

Singer Songwriter

Al Halliday is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who now lives in New England.  He has performed with bands and as a solo artist throughout eastern Canada and the Northeast United States.

As a child Al persuaded his mother, Patsie Halliday, to teach him old American folk songs on guitar—transcendent classics by Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Stephen Foster and others—that had sustained Patsie and her four sisters during the years they spent as WWII refugees in Australia.  Al later added piano and taught himself the music of classic rock and Americana artists from the 1960s and ‘70s. As his musical tastes expanded Al brought bagpipes and accordion into his collection of working instruments.

Al has fronted and written music for two bands—Al Halliday & the Hurricanes, and The Griffins—and his songs can be found in two full length records—RAIN and WREN—and numerous shorter collections.  His work has been played on college and mainstream radio, including Chum FM in Toronto and WBCN in Boston. Al topped the charts of in the late 1990s and early 2000s.  Tracks from RAIN and WREN have been featured in a full-length film, Under Hell Gate Bridge, and many network TV shows in the US and around the world.

Al is currently working on a third full length record. You can check out his latest single, Bonneville, here. It features the vocals of his daughter (Patsie's granddaughter), Patricia Halliday
