Great Big Sean...

If you missed the phenomenon out of Newfoundland that is Great Big Sea, who absolutely delighted, energized and thoroughly entertained a capacity crowd at Boarding House Park last Friday night in their attendance record setting appearance (biggest show of the season so far) at the Lowell Summer Music Series, do not dispare...come down from the widow's walk and rejoice. Your ship has come in! ...so to speak.

The charming and charismatic Sean McCann (pictured center playing guitar) will be back in the area before you know it. His side project, Sean McCann and the Committed, are embarking on a northeast tour in support of their new record Son of a Sailor. Fans of Great Big Sea will not be disappointed by this offering and his area shows in early October. 10/5 @ The Brighton Music Hall and 10/6 @ The Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury Beach, MA.

Jack Baldwin and I had the pleasure of chatting with Sean last week, he had great things to say about our fair city of Lowell, the history of Great Big Sea as well as his other band, The Committed, that will be coming back through in October. Below is a link to that interview.
