Sean McGaughey is a father, teacher-librarian, singer-songwriter, musician, podcaster, and author living on the shores of Georgian Bay in North-Central Ontario. From 2007 to 2012 I hosted a weekly podcast on this site, For the Sake of the Song, where I interviewed songwriters from across North America.

Here is a mixtape of several of my live videos.
On December 6, 2003, I invited about 30 friend’s and family to my basement wreck room for a live recording of original songs.
My friend Russ Clayton brought his digital studio and recorded the performance.
A live CD For the Sake of the Song was released in November 2004.
All songs from the album can also be downloaded for free at
