    Séan McCann, widely known as a member of internationally renowned band, Great Big Sea, has spent the last 20 years sailing around the world enamouring audiences from Copenhagen to California. Séan decided it was time to leave the comfort of safer waters and set out on his own for a new shore. His new album, and third solo project, entitled Help Your Self was released digitally on January 29th, 2014. Listen to Séan’s frank and inspiring interview on CBC Radio’s “The Current” here.

    For 19 years, Pamela Morgan was lead singer, guitarist, and arranger for Canada’s pioneering Celtic band, Newfoundland’s Figgy Duff, who brought the traditional music of Newfoundland to the world stage. Since then, Pamela has been spearheading her own independent record label, Amber Music, producing music for NL’s finest roots artists, including four of her own solo CDs. She continues to write, arrange, produce, and perform in her own highly original and hauntingly beautiful style.

    Our host for this evening is actress and producer Ali Liebert. Ali has been nominated for a 2015 Canadian Screen Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Series – for her role as Betty McRae in the hit Global TV series Bomb Girls. In 2011 Ali co-founded Sociable Films, a boutique film production company whose first feature film Afterparty won the William F. White Reel Canadian Indie award at the 2014 Canadian Film Fest.
