Live at the Hill House: Sean McConnell

Sunday, July 28 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm 
at The Hill House, 1610 Autumn Lane, Mancelona, MI

Join us for an intimate house concert with musician in residence, Sean McConnell. Wine, beer and light appetizers will be provided.

Sean was born into a family of full-time musicians. Growing up in the coffee houses of the Boston folk scene, Sean watched his parents playing songs written by Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, David Wilcox, Shawn Colvin, Harry Chapin, CSNY, James Taylor and others of the like. Unknown to him or his parents, Sean was soaking it all in and locking it away somewhere inside. Unaware of it, Sean was enrolled in the most important class of his career.

Now in Nashville, Tennessee, Sean divides his time between writing and touring.

Sean says, “At the risk of sounding like a hippie on a soapbox, music is still powerful and holy and sacred to me. You can turn it into a product and a business, but you can’t start it that way. To me the genesis of a song has to be honest and unassuming... When I write songs, I like to focus on the fact that we are all the same and we are all just searching for answers and trying to make sense of everything. It's about exploring life and celebrating truth when you find it.”
