The Shantyman Sings for the Tall Ships

Séan McCann (the Shantyman) is a founder of the iconic Canadian folk rock band Great Big Sea

An Order of Canada recipient for his advocacy of 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 theatre 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 .
