SÉAN MCCANN (the Shantyman) is a founder of the iconic Canadian folk rock band Great Big Sea and an Order of Canada recipient for his advocacy for people living with mental health and addiction issues. He has spent the last ten years touring North America as a solo concert performer and musical keynote speaker, singing and sharing his story with theater audiences, front line workers, teachers, students, patients, inmates, veterans, and anyone who has struggled with their mental health. Séan believes that music is medicine and a song is never more powerful than when it is sung with a friend. His new album SHANTYMAN is a rollicking return to his own maritime roots and an invigorating breath of salty sea air to help shake off the negative effects of social isolation.
