Séan McCann, acclaimed singer-songwriter, JUNO Award nominee, and mental health advocate, is taking his music and his message on the road. One of his stops will be the Fergus Grand Theatre on March 24.
As a founding member of internationally renowned folk group Great Big Sea, McCann chose to forge his own path five years ago and use his music to help him heal from an alcohol addiction that masked his secret of sexual abuse during his teens.
In 2018, McCann will play a 29-city tour supporting his fifth solo album, There’s a Place, that sees him taking another step forward in his recovery, but a step back to his traditional musical roots.
McCann’s musical message is now more than just notes and melodies. There’s a Place is a cleansing of sorts.
His last two solo albums, Help Your Self and You Know I Love You, were a large musical departure from his Great Big Sea beginnings.
In his latest release, he brings together his roots and his message on 11 tracks sung by a man who knows his purpose, who embraces his past, but refuses to let it define him.
McCann also worked with artist/designer Jenna Gregory on There’s a Place: A Colouring Book Companion, which accompanies the album as an interactive creative outlet for fans.
