At the Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch, children who have been sexually abused connect with their peers who have faced similar trauma. As they journey through intensive multi-modal treatment at the Ranch, children have added comfort of each other’s support. Please help them grow stronger together by joining us at the 7th Annual Little Warriors Be Brave Luncheon on May 1st, 2019 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton.

Date: Wednesday, May 1st, 2019
Time: 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Location: Shaw Conference Centre Hall D, 9797 Jasper Ave. NW, Edmonton, Alberta

Featuring Keynote Speaker: Sean McCann

As a founding member of acclaimed Newfoundland band Great Big Sea, Séan McCann has sold over 2 million albums and travelled the world making every night of the week a Saturday night for the legions of music lovers who propelled the band to fame. Despite the success however, it was a very unhealthy place for Séan to be. Music is supposed to connect, heal, and bring happiness, and while Séan was giving that to tens of thousands of people a night, he himself was lost. Instead of finding truth in his music he was using it to hide, which wasn’t fair to his fans or himself. So he left the band and started over.

After exiting 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. His 2014 album “Help Your Self” was his personal battle cry as he decided to share the secrets that had been haunting him for 30 years. Music became his medicine.

Performing ‘songs without secrets’ was a starting point for Séan and a rallying point for other survivors of sexual abuse. Séan’s courage to confront his truth and share his journey of healing with the world is an inspiration to survivors everywhere and has set him on a new path in which he uses his experiences to help others confront their own truth. Our luncheon title, “Songs Without Secrets” recognizes Séan’s accomplishments as a musician, songwriter and performer and his commitment to share his story with passion and honesty.
