This episode features Yukon singer/songwriter Declan O’Donovan. We first caught up with Declan in 2015 at Haines Junction’s own Village Bakery, and you can hear that performance on JAM Live! Episode 40.
Declan grew up in the Yukon but nowadays calls the Yukon and Montreal, Quebec, home. He has been described as “a masterful songwriter who collects life’s experiences and artfully turns them into songs that capture the imagination of his audiences.” and “a contemporary troubadour who utilizes a broad palate of voice and piano to tell intriguing stories through the music he creates.” n
In December 2017, Declan was back in “the Junction” for a solo performance at the St. Elias Convention Centre in Haines Junction, Yukon. This was part of the second annual, and very successful, “Mountain Festival”. He treated the audience to songs from his second album titled “Broken Sky” which he released earlier in the year.
