“Stay calm and shanty on”
A lot has happened in the almost 10 years since Séan McCann exited the Canadian folk rock arena filling GREAT BIG SEA he co-founded in 1993. He’s released five successful solo albums touching on a range of subjects from Canadian life and culture to spotlighting national hardships like the infamous 2016 wildfires that devastated Fort McMurray, Alberta, in which he partnered with the Canadian Red Cross. A philanthropist as much as he is an artist, McCann also organized a songwriters’ benefit in 2017 in support of veterans suffering with PTSD and addiction. In recognition of these efforts and his other advocacy work for people living with mental health and addiction issues, McCann earned the Order of Canada in 2020 McCann has shared his powerful and inspiring personal story and songs with audiences all across North America over the past decade as a solo performer and musical keynote speaker. As the concert trail is opening up again as pandemic restrictions loosen, McCann continues to do what loves best, write and perform songs and share stories accompanied by his best friend “Old Brown” – the first guitar he purchased back in 1989.
