About Adam

The Shanty Man

The son of Edward and Anita McCann was born in Gull Island, Newfoundland on May 22, near Carbonear.  The always changing percussionist of Great Big Sea is never in the same place for long, and also rarely seen with the same hair-do for any extended period of time.  Like Alan, Sean left MUN with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English (Folklore).  Sean is one of the top bodhran players in Newfoundland, but also sings, plays acoustic guitar and tin whitsle.  Standing second from the right on stage, Sean is a very energetic performer.  Sean enjoys cooking and outdoorsmanship in his freetime, including hiking and moutain biking.
