Séan McCann Live in Concert – Weldon Matthews Theatre – Florenceville-Bristol, NB
April 27, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$25
Séan McCann bought his first guitar in 1989 which he affectionately calls “Old Brown”. Old Brown has been around. He was there for the first song Séan ever wrote. He was there as Séan founded the acclaimed and multi-million selling band that would change his life. He was there to hold Séan up many a night as he struggled with alcoholism, and he has been there to help guide Séan out of the darkness with music as his medicine.
John Lennon once sang, “You can live a lie until you die. One thing you can’t hide is when you’re crippled inside.” After exiting the internationally renowned folk group Great Big Sea and publicly admitting a secret past in which he used alcohol to mask the pain of sexual abuse by a priest; Séan stopped lying to himself and found his truth and his own voice. With the release of his 5th solo album, “There’s a Place”, he continues his journey as a singer, songwriter, and now a sought-after speaker and mental health advocate with Old Brown by his side and a simple message: “You are not alone.”
