Séan McCann (the Shantyman) is a founder of the iconic Canadian 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 past ten years touring North America, singing and sharing his story with frontline workers, teachers, students, patients, inmates, veterans, and anyone who has been affected by addiction or abuse. 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.
