A benefit concert in support of Guitars for Vets

Friday, November 10th, 2017, 8pm

Algonquin Commons Theatre, Ottawa

Séan McCann will be hosting a special songwriter’s circle benefit concert in support of Guitars for Vets, and will be joined by fellow artists and friends Sarah Harmer, Joel Plaskett, and Jeremy Fisher. Our hope is to raise enough money to purchase 700 guitars to be distributed across Canada, along with free lessons, so our former and current service men and women can have the long term benefits of this gift.


$100 / ticket (the price of a guitar)
